The Crimson Petal and the White by Michel Faber
"OK, this is a book that deals intimately with the life of a prostitute so, yes, it does have it's fair share of indelicate scenes. I must say, though, I think sex had a specific purpose in this book, above and far beyond sensationalism. I found th..." Read more of this review »

3.75 rounded up. It took me awhile to get into this, but once things went to hell I couldn't put it down. What was most interesting to me were the views and fears of a nuclear war and it's aftermath at the time this book takes place/was published.

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

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

Megan Whalen Turner
“I'll be your minister--"
"Of the exchequer? You'd rob me blind."
"I would never steal from you," he'd said hotly.
"Oh? Where is my tourmaline necklace? Where are my missing earrings?"
"That necklace was hideous. It was the only way to keep you from wearing it."
"My earrings?"
"What earrings?”
Megan Whalen Turner, The Queen of Attolia

Andy Weir
“Maybe I’ll post a consumer review. “Brought product to surface of Mars. It stopped working. 0/10.”
Andy Weir, The Martian

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
