Also I started carrying around a thick spiral notebook, and all year I'd work on my book. longhand. I also illustrated it. At the end of the year, I gave the book to my grandmother, and asked her to critique it.

One of my biggest influences was Rolling Stone magazine. I loved the interviews, and the characters who were interviews. Even though I was not really into music, I was really curious about the lives of musicians. (less)

The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone by Adele Griffin
"One of the most captivating reads I've read in quite some time. Absolutely unique and breathtaking."

“It's strange how so much life can be lived without speaking”
Adele Griffin, Where I Want to Be

“Fears are to be faced, not denied, and life is to be lived, not mourned.”
Adele Griffin, Where I Want to Be

“Aunt Clara doesn't take her eyes off her toast. Her delicate jet earrings tremble as her knife scratches at the toast like a cat's paw, buttering every inch. Strange how even the most mundane habits of dislikable people can strike such harsh chords. I even hate the way Aunt butters.”
Adele Griffin, Picture the Dead

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Who is the third who walks always beside you?
When I count, there are only you and I together
But when I look ahead up the white road
There is always another one walking beside you
Gliding wrapt in a brown mantle, hooded
I do not know whether a man or a woman
-But who is that on the other side of you?”
T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land and Other Poems

“No, no—there are depths, depths! The more I go over it, the more I see in it, and the more I see in it, the more I fear. I don’t know what I don’t see—what I don’t fear!”
Henry James, The Turn of the Screw

“Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another's skin, another's voice, another's soul.”
Joyce Carol Oates

“Hugh consoled me, saying, "Don't let it get to you. There are plenty of things you're good at."

When asked for some examples, he listed vacuuming and naming stuffed animals. He says he can probably come up with a few more, but he'll need some time to think.”
David Sedaris, Me Talk Pretty One Day

“All of us can think of a book... that we hope none of our children or any other children have taken off the shelf. But if I have the right to remove that book from the shelf - that work I abhor - then you also have exactly the same right and so does everyone else. And then we have no books left on the shelf for any of us.”
Katherine Paterson
