The Madwoman in the Volvo by Sandra Tsing Loh

The Madwoman in the Volvo by Sandra Tsing Loh

I've read just about everything out there on the "subject matter of the change" and have been... " Read more of this review »
The Madwoman in the Volvo by Sandra Tsing Loh
" This book is hilarious, unnerving, irreverent, honest, and did I mention hilarious? An essayist for The Atlantic magazine and an NPR radio commentator, Tsing Loh has never shied away from addressing very personal issues in her life, and this book... " Read more of this review »

Very little made him happier than pulling into his driveway and seeing, through the window, his family moving around inside, a diorama of his life he could effortlessly step back into.Molly Antopol

Apparently, we flew. We were lifted high, flung about like a tetherball; five tons of metal and steel, and another half-ton of human flesh, lifted up more than a yard—60 inches high—to the height of my throat; lifted as if by God’s hand, shot up from underneath, or within, a pop of the weasel, straight into the palm of the Lord.Scott C. Johnson

“What [my father] didn’t say, but what was understood, was that he needed me to lie for him from then on, and lie like a professional. I had license to dissimulate, fabricate, invent, cover-up, and deceive if necessary. There was a greater good.”

“Rule #12: The correct number of bikes to own is N+1, where N is the number of bikes currently owned.”

“The world clings to its old mental picture of the stock market because it’s comforting; because it’s so hard to draw a picture of what has replaced it; and because the few people able to draw it for you have no interest in doing so.”
Michael Lewis, Flash Boys

Scott C. Johnson
“But despite the ease, theirs was also a world of intrigue and secrets, in which wit and flashy derring-do were rewarded. In such circles, people began to call my father Silver Tongue, and so my mother did, too, smiling and teasing him about his ease with people and his facility with words, all the while feeling intimidated by those things herself.”
Scott C. Johnson, The Wolf and the Watchman: A Father, a Son, and the CIA
