Summer of Monsters by Tony Thompson
"Summer of Monsters is an enjoyable book that sits somewhere between historical fiction and social history. Add a big slice of literary history served by a witty guide and it adds to a rollicking but smart read. It's not a big surprise that the aut..." Read more of this review »

“That is not what I meant. Of course you belong here, because you have offered me your friendship, and friends always belong together. But friends look out for each other's welfare, and I am concerned for yours. I wish only to protect you."

"It is I who must protect you!" she exclaimed, although she did not understand why she felt this so strongly. "You need protecting. I can look after myself."

"None of us can look after ourselves," he said after a moment. "We all have to look after each other.”
Cassandra Golds, The Museum of Mary Child

“For love was a kind of folly, a losing game. The greatest of all Wastes of Time. But then, that depended on what you thought time was for.”
