I consider myself an Amy Poehler fan and love her work on Parks and Recreation. Yet I found this book mediocre and rarely funny.

Colum McCann
“Cynicism is easy. An optimist is a braver cynic.”
Colum McCann, TransAtlantic

Andrew Solomon
“To look deep into your child's eyes and see in him both yourself and something utterly strange, and then to develop a zealous attachment to every aspect of him, is to achieve parenthood's self-regarding, yet unselfish, abandon. It is astonishing how often such mutuality had been realized - how frequently parents who had supposed that they couldn't care for an exceptional child discover that they can. The parental predisposition to love prevails in the most harrowing of circumstances. There is more imagination in the world than one might think.”
Andrew Solomon, Far from the Tree: Parents, Children, and the Search for Identity

David Walliams
“In Britain, a cup of tea is the answer to every problem.
Fallen off your bicycle? Nice cup of tea.
Your house has been destroyed by a meteorite? Nice cup of tea and a biscuit.
Your entire family has been eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex that has travelled through a space/time portal? Nice cup of tea and a piece of cake. Possibly a savoury option would be welcome here too, for example a Scotch egg or a sausage roll.”
David Walliams, Mr Stink

Colum McCann
“The essence of intelligence was to know when, or if, to expose even the heart's deep need for instruction.”
Colum McCann, TransAtlantic
