Gyasi's debut novel is gut wrenching. She follows the descendants of two half-sisters who never knew each other as their lives unfold in Ghana and the U.S. It is a must-read.

Larissa Brown does an amazing job sending the reader back in time. Every scene is written with confidence that kept me in the narrative dream. My only disappointment is that I have to wait to read the next volume, but I will try to enjoy the anticipa ...more

House of Names by Colm Tóibín
Rate this book
Clear rating
My undergrad class in the classics set me up to love this re-telling of the Clytemnestra/Iphigenia/Agamemnon/Electra/Orestes story. I was swept along by Toibin's strong prose, and I especially appreciated the conversation between Orestes and Ianthe a ...more

Barkskins by Annie Proulx
Rate this book
Clear rating
For a change, a book described as epic that is, in fact, epic. At first I grew frustrated by the repetition of the idea that is at the root of the novel and comes up repeatedly: colonists arrive in a new-to-them land, believe the resources to be infi ...more

Jane Austen
“I am not at all in a humor for writing; I must write on till I am.”
Jane Austen

Neil Gaiman
“Each person who ever was or is or will be has a song. It isn't a song that anybody else wrote. It has its own melody, it has its own words. Very few people get to sing their song. Most of us fear that we cannot do it justice with our voices, or that our words are too foolish or too honest, or too odd. So people live their song instead.”
Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys

T.S. Eliot
“For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.”
T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets

Neil Gaiman
“Stories are like spiders, with all they long legs, and stories are like spiderwebs, which man gets himself all tangled up in but which look pretty when you see them under a leaf in the morning dew, and in the elegant way that they connect to one another, each to each.”
Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys
