favorite quotes so far:

"Something that's emotional is usually a whole lot easier to make fun of than something that's just toned down and ordinary."

Harvor is a terrific story writer, I prefer her to Alice Munro who gets far more attention and acclaim. She is particularly good at describing the inner life of women, often married or divorced, and is good at capturing family life as well.
