"I'd forgotten to mark my progress through the book; I've missed a lot. but I especially wanted to note how beautifully Tartt handles the desperation of the love for Pippa, how such and twisted and wrackingly sad and yet true and lovely it is. I love how he loves her." Mar 19, 2014 10:02AM

"feeling some hope here; there is an especially nice space where Dubus' characters find beauty in the parts that are unlike their old loves, and I appreciate it. I'm not sure, though, if any of the female characters come off as truly relatable and empathetic" Mar 19, 2014 09:58AM

I know, it's a book with my essay in it, I'm hardly going to give it one star. But not only is my essay, 'No Other Gods,' objectively good (I maintain); the whole compilation is an illuminating, thought-provoking, highly-scented description of what i ...more

L.K. Madigan
“The main thing is to WRITE. Some days it might be 2000 words. Some days you might tinker with two sentences until you get them just right. Both days belong in the writing life. Some days you may watch a ‘Doctor Who’ marathon or become immersed in a book that is so good you can’t stop reading. Some days you may be in love or in mourning. Those days belong in the writing life, too. Live them without guilt.”

“I had been my whole life a bell, and never knew it until at that moment I was lifted and struck.”
Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

Annie Dillard
“I used to have a cat, an old fighting tom, who would jump through the open window by my bed in the middle of the night and land on my chest. I'd half-awaken. He'd stick his skull under my nose and purr, stinking of urine and blood. Some nights he kneaded my bare chest with his front paws, powerfully, arching his back, as if sharpening his claws, or pummeling a mother for milk. And some mornings I'd wake in daylight to find my body covered with paw prints in blood; I looked as though I'd been painted with roses.”
Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

Annie Dillard
“Tonight I walked around the pond scaring frogs; a couple of them jumped off, going, in effect, eek, and most grunted, and the pond was still. But one big frog, bright green like a poster-paint frog, didn't jump, so I waved my arm and stamped to scare it, and it jumped suddenly, and I jumped, and then everything in the pond jumped, and I laughed and laughed.”
Annie Dillard
