"I love these short stories. They stick with me long after I've finished; I usually can't start the next one right away because I'm still thinking of the last. Last night I had a dream based on the one I read yesterday. The strong, stark writing and well-drawn characters remind me of Carson McCullers. Every story lingers..." Nov 14, 2014 05:52AM

Gustave Flaubert
“Before her marriage she had thought that she had love within her grasp; but since the happiness which she had expected this love to bring her hadn’t come, she supposed she must have been mistaken. And Emma tried to imagine just what was meant, in life, by the words “bliss,” “passion,” and “rapture” - words that had seemed so beautiful to her in books.”
Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary

Margaret Atwood
“Romance takes place in the middle distance. Romance is looking in at yourself through a window clouded with dew. Romance means leaving things out: where life grunts and shuffles, romance only sighs.”
Margaret Atwood

Jenny Hollowell
“Birdie is silent. She is tired of soon. Soon is round and smooth, without never’s honest jagged edges. Soon is like the End of the World, always approaching but never arriving. Soon is the excuse people use when nothing ever happens on time.”
Jenny Hollowell, Everything Lovely, Effortless, Safe

Chuck Palahniuk
“What I want is to be needed. What I need is to be indispensable to somebody. Who I need is somebody that will eat up all my free time, my ego, my attention. Somebody addicted to me. A mutual addiction.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Choke

Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
“It was inevitable: the scent of bitter almonds always reminded him of the fate of unrequited love.”
Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
