“You won't further the cause of human rights by walking away with your morals intact. Change is about getting your hand dirty.”
Brian Malloy, The Year of Ice

“The uncle and cousin seem nice, but the aunt is a bit of a shock. Whith her hair dyed bright red, she looks like Ronald McDonald's post-menopausal sister. Who has let herself go.”
Brian Malloy, Twelve Long Months

“But there’s this thing in her voice, like what my mom called “doublespeak.” Saying one thing and meaning another. Aunt Nora told me it was leftover from English rule. She said, “That’s the only good thing to ever come of colonialism, Kevin. The Irish can tell you to go to hell in such a way that you look forward to the trip.”
Brian Malloy, The Year of Ice
