Taipei by Tao Lin
"Tao Lin has become something of a minor literary celebrity for reasons which are entirely unknown to me. I had only previously read his first novel, Eeeee Eee Eeee: A Novel.

Frank McCourt
“You might be poor, your shoes might be broken, but your mind is a palace.”
Frank McCourt, Angela's Ashes

Anthony Powell
“I was impressed for the ten thousandth time by the fact that literature illuminates life only for those to whom books are a necessity. Books are unconvertible assets, to be passed on only to those who possess them already.”
Anthony Powell, The Valley of Bones

Chloe Aridjis
“After five years I still had the impulse, every ten to twelve months, to find a new home. Spaces became too familiar, too elastic, too accommodating. Boredom and exasperation would set in.

Chloe Aridjis, Book of Clouds

Robert A. Heinlein
“A prude is a person who thinks that his own rules of propriety are natural laws.”
Robert A. Heinlein

Joseph Mitchell
“...you can hate a place with all your heart and soul and still be homesick for it.”
Joseph Mitchell
