Steve Toltz
“The game is an analogy for life: there are not enough chairs or good times to go around, not enough food, not enough joy, nor beds nor jobs nor laughs nor friends nor smiles nor money nor clean air to breathe...and yet the music goes on.”
Steve Toltz, A Fraction of the Whole

John Williams
“Sometimes, immersed in his books, there would come to him the awareness of all that he did not know, of all that he had not read; and the serenity for which he labored was shattered as he realized the little time he had in life to read so much, to learn what he had to know.”
John Williams, Stoner

Anthony Marra

Anthony Marra, A Constellation of Vital Phenomena

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“There are no second chances in life, except to feel remorse.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“Every book has a soul, the soul of the person who wrote it and the soul of those who read it and dream about it.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Angel's Game
