Quotes Michael Liked

Adam Johnson
“The light, the sky, the water, they were all things you looked *through* during the day. At night, they were things you looked *into*. You looked *into* the stars, you looked *into* dark rollers and the surprising platinum flash of their caps.”
Adam Johnson, The Orphan Master's Son

Adam Johnson
“Where we are from... [s]tories are factual. If a farmer is declared a music virtuoso by the state, everyone had better start calling him maestro. And secretly, he'd be wise to start practicing the piano. For us, the story is more important than the person. If a man and his story are in conflict, it is the man who must change.”
Adam Johnson, The Orphan Master's Son

Adam Johnson
“The next day, she was silent. For breakfast, she murdered an onion and served it raw.”
Adam Johnson, The Orphan Master's Son
