"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

This novel took me quite some time to read. I think I read the first few pages about three or four times; I should have known when the bookseller said to me, "Great book, but, it's bigger that it seems." The slim book came with many surprises - compl ...more

Ron Butlin
“It used to be that each time you fell in love, the effort of loving released in you the energy to hold everything together a little longer. Then, after several months or years, when things began to crack apart again, you would fall in love with someone else. New energy would be released, and for a time you and your world would be safe once more.

By now, however, you have exhausted that. There seems to be no energy left - if you had discovered alcohol earlier it might have saved a few broken hearts. For you, alcohol is not the problem - it's the solution: dissolving all the separate parts into one. A universal solvent. An ocean.”
Ron Butlin, The Sound of My Voice

Jane Austen
“In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”
Jane Austen, Pride And Prejudice

Ford Madox Ford
“There is no man who loves a woman that does not desire to come to her for the renewal of his courage, for the cutting asunder of his difficulties. And that will be the mainspring of his desire for her. We are all so afraid, we are all so alone, we all so need from the outside the assurance of our own worthiness to exist.”
Ford Madox Ford, The Good Soldier

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
