The prose is brilliant. I loved Morgenstern's style. The imagery was beautiful, and I loved the descriptions of the scenes. But I was let down.

“Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either.”
Elizabeth Zimmermann

“You know everything you need to know about a person from the answer to the question, What is your favorite book?
Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

“We aren't the things we collect, acquire, read. We are, for as long as we are here, only love. The things we loved. The people we loved. And these, I think these really do live on.”
Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Gabrielle Zevin
“The words you can't find, you borrow.

Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
