This is a quick, accessible, and enjoyable classic. I was sort of dreading it, and was going to use this as my 2015 "book that scares you." It didn't scare me, though, maybe because I was enjoying it too much.

Ogden Nash
“Tonight’s December thirty-first,
Something is about to burst.
The clock is crouching, dark and small,
Like a time bomb in the hall.
Hark, it's midnight, children dear.
Duck! Here comes another year!”
Ogden Nash, Collected verse from 1929 on

Sarah Vowell
“Behind every bad law, a deep fear.”
Sarah Vowell, The Wordy Shipmates

E.B. White
“I get up every morning determined to both change the world and have one hell of a good time. Sometimes this makes planning my day difficult.”
E.B. White

Megan Whalen Turner
“Why did you come if not to murder my king?"
"I came to steal his magus."
"You can't," said the magus in question.
"I can steal anything," Eugenides corrected him, "even with one hand.”
Megan Whalen Turner, The Queen of Attolia

Abraham Verghese
“The key to your happiness is to own your slippers, own who you are, own how you look, own your family, own the talents you have, and own the ones you don't. If you keep saying your slippers aren't yours, then you'll die searching, you'll die bitter, always feeling you were promised more. Not only our actions, but also our omissions, become our destiny.”
Abraham Verghese, Cutting for Stone
