This Town by Mark Leibovich

Starts out as lively humor -- I loved the opening scene where someone at a wake says "you can't work the room TOO hard" because it was, after all, a wake. And it continues to be funny -- more of that "oh I can NOT believe this" kind of humor. Also a...more

Oh! The series is almost over and I've really enjoyed it. I'll need a new "I know I'll like this" series to read.

Good - friendly - light read. I enjoyed it.... the kind of book where you know the idea already.... women who love quilting will support each other through life's trials and tribulations. Good summer afternoon reading.

Valuing community -- a real, not-trendy, not-perfect Southern community -- while it is still real and while there is still a chance to save the natural environment and the community around it.

Peter J. Gomes
“It is interesting to me to note that those who most frequently call for fair play are those who are advantaged by the play as it currently is, and that only when that position of privilege is endangered are they likely to benefit from the change required to "play by the rules." What if the "rules" are inherently unfair or simply wrong, or a greater good is to be accomplished by changing them? When the gospel says, "The last will be first, and the first will be last," despite the fact it is counterintuitive to our cultural presuppositions, it is invariably good news to those who are last, and at least problematic news to those who see themselves as first.”
Peter J. Gomes, The Scandalous Gospel of Jesus: What's So Good about the Good News?

Peter J. Gomes
“The question should not be "What would Jesus do?" but rather, more dangerously, "What would Jesus have me do?" The onus is not on Jesus but on us, for Jesus did not come to ask semidivine human beings to do impossible things. He came to ask human beings to live up to their full humanity; he wants us to live in the full implication of our human gifts, and that is far more demanding.”
Peter J. Gomes, The Scandalous Gospel of Jesus: What's So Good about the Good News?

Madeleine L'Engle
“Love of music, of sunsets and sea; a liking for the same kind of people; political opinions that are not radically divergent; a similar stance as we look at the stars and think of the marvelous strangeness of the universe - these are what build a marriage. And it is never to be taken for granted.”
Madeleine L'Engle, Two-Part Invention: The Story of a Marriage

Madeleine L'Engle
“We don't want to feel less when we have finished a book; we want to feel that new possibilities of being have been opened to us. We don't want to close a book with a sense that life is totally unfair and that there is no light in the darkness; we want to feel that we have been given illumination.”
Madeleine L'Engle, Walking on Water

Yōko Ogawa
“...The pages and pages of complex, impenetrable calculations might have contained the secrets of the universe, copied out of God's notebook.
In my imagination, I saw the creator of the universe sitting in some distant corner of the sky, weaving a pattern of delicate lace so fine that that even the faintest light would shine through it. The lace stretches out infinitely in every direction, billowing gently in the cosmic breeze. You want desperately to touch it, hold it up to the light, rub it against your cheek. And all we ask is to be able to re-create the pattern, weave it again with numbers, somehow, in our own language; to make the tiniest fragment our own, to bring it back to eart.”
Yōko Ogawa, The Housekeeper and the Professor
