William Golding
“My yesterdays walk with me. They keep step, they are gray faces that peer over my shoulder.”
William Golding

Raymond Chandler
“She had eyes like strange sins.”
Raymond Chandler, The High Window

Truman Capote
“The village of Holcomb stands on the high wheat plains of western Kansas, a lonesome area that other Kansans call “out there.”
Truman Capote, In Cold Blood

Philip Roth
“He had learned the worst lesson that life can teach - that it makes no sense. And when that happens the happiness is never spontaneous again. It is artificial and, even then, bought at the price of an obstinate estrangement from oneself and one's history.”
Philip Roth, American Pastoral

Dorothy L. Sayers
“It's very good of you--"

"No, no, not at all. It's my hobby. Not proposing to people, I don't mean, but investigating things. Well, cheer-frightfully-ho and all that. And I'll call again, if I may."

"I will give the footman orders to admit you," said the prisoner, gravely, "you will always find me at home.”
Dorothy L. Sayers, Strong Poison
