Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee
"When I take my fondness for Harper Lee out of the equation and judge this by the same standards I judge all books with no bias, I give it three stars. I liked it but it was nothing remarkable and was choppy in places, leaping about with no real re..." Read more of this review »

Philip Roth
“Actually we did not have the feelings we said we had until we spoke them--at least I didn't; to phrase them was to invent them and own them.”
Philip Roth, Goodbye, Columbus and Five Short Stories

Janet Fitch
“I know what you are learning to endure. There is nothing to be done. Make sure nothing is wasted. Take notes. Remember it all, every insult, every tear. Tattoo it on the inside of your mind. In life, knowledge of poisons is essential. I've told you, nobody becomes an artist unless they have to.”
Janet Fitch, White Oleander

Jennifer Egan
“I’m done. I’m old, I’m sad - that’s on a good day. I want out of this mess. But I don’t want to fade away, I want to flame away - I want my death to be an attraction, a spectacle, a mystery. A work of art.”
Jennifer Egan, A Visit from the Goon Squad

Voltaire
“Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.”
Voltaire, Questions sur les Miracles à M. Claparede, Professeur de Théologie à Genève, par un Proposant: Ou Extrait de Diverses Lettres de M. de Voltaire

Jennifer Egan
“There's a fine line between thinking about somebody and thinking about not thinking about somebody, but I have the patience and the self-control to walk that line for hours - days, if I have to.”
Jennifer Egan, A Visit from the Goon Squad
