Ciona and 4 other people liked Rebecca's review of Mama Day:
Mama Day by Gloria Naylor
"Every August I read this book from cover to cover. Island magic, the bonds of family, and the power of the past haunt this book.

This is the first year that I truly understood why George needed to bring back his hands to Mama Day in the end. It's t..." Read more of this review »

Mama Day by Gloria Naylor
"Gloria Naylor is an amazing author. Her writing is little Toni Morrison-esque. This is a quick read, pulling you into every page. I loved it! (Thanks Erin for the rec!)"

Katherine Mansfield
“I have made it a rule of my life never to regret and never to look back. Regret is an appalling waste of energy... you can't build on it; it's only good for wallowing in.”
Katherine Mansfield

Katherine Mansfield
“I imagine I was always writing. Twaddle it was, too. But better far write twaddle or anything, anything, than nothing at all.”
Katherine Mansfield

Naomi Shihab Nye
“Anyone who says, “Here’s my address,
write me a poem,” deserves something in reply.
So I’ll tell a secret instead:
poems hide. In the bottoms of our shoes,
they are sleeping. They are the shadows
drifting across our ceilings the moment
before we wake up. What we have to do
is live in a way that lets us find them.”
Naomi Shihab Nye, Red Suitcase

Katherine Mansfield
“I adore Life. What do all the fools matter and all the stupidity. They do matter but somehow for me they cannot touch the body of Life. Life is marvellous. I want to be deeply rooted in it - to live - to expand - to breathe in it - to rejoice - to share it. To give and to be asked for Love.”
Katherine Mansfield

Ernest Hemingway
“As a writer, you should not judge, you should understand.”
Ernest Hemingway
