Charlotte Eriksson
“I am clumsy, drop glasses and get drunk on Monday afternoons. I read Seneca and can recite Shakespeare by heart, but I mess up the laundry, don’t answer my phone and blame the world when something goes wrong. I think I have a dream, but most of the days I’m still sleeping. The grass is cut. It smells like strawberries. Today I finished four books and cleaned my drawers.
Do you believe in a God? Can I tell you about Icarus? How he flew too close to the sun?

I want to make coming home your favourite part of the day. I want to leave tiny little words lingering in your mind, on nights when you’re far away and can’t sleep. I want to make everything around us beautiful; make small things mean a little more. Make you feel a little more. A little better, a little lighter. The coffee is warm, this cup is yours. I want to be someone you can’t live without.

I want to be someone you can’t live without.”
Charlotte Eriksson

Stewart O'Nan
“I'm sorry you don't like coming back here," her mother often said, to cap whatever petty dust-up they'd had.

Stewart O'Nan, Emily, Alone

Lois Lowry, Messenger

Scott McClanahan
“I walked up to the side of the mountain like I used to do when I was a little boy. I looked out over Rainelle and watched it shine. The coal trucks and the logging trucks were still gunning it through town. They were still clear cutting the mountains and cutting the coal from the ground. Then I heard my mother calling and it was like I was a child again.”
Scott McClanahan, Hill William

Laura Marney
“...I'd come home but nearly everybody does. It's the ones that don't go home that I feel sorry for, they're not happy.”
Laura Marney, No Wonder I Take A Drink
