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.

This book is about dull disaffected 'arty' late-20s hipster types taking..." Read more of this review »

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

Russell Brand
“Murderers! Stop murdering. Everyone will die eventually. Just sit down and be patient.”
Russell Brand

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

Colleen McCullough
“Never forget, Caelius, that a great man makes his luck. Luck is there for everyone to seize. Most of us miss our chances; we're blind to our luck. He never misses a chance because he's never blind to the opportunity of the moment.”
Colleen McCullough, Caesar
