A story filled with wise & good people - and lots of good food!
Usually I watch mysteries on TV, this one I listened to - but I still felt I could see the scenery as if I was there. I guess this is crime for the more weak-hearted amongst us. Most

Ooops - I really cannot see how come anyone can call this the work of an outstanding novelist at the height of her powers. The novelist may of course be outstanding, but she sure dosen't show it in this work!

Pauline Kael
“Irresponsibility is part of the pleasure of all art; it is the part the schools cannot recognize.”
Pauline Kael

Mark Doty
“…I have fallen in love with a painting. Though that phrase doesn’t seem to suffice, not really—rather’s it that I have been drawn into the orbit of a painting, have allowed myself to be pulled into its sphere by casual attraction deepening to something more compelling. I have felt the energy and life of the painting’s will; I have been held there, instructed. And the overall effect, the result of looking and looking into it’s brimming surface as long as I could look, is love, by which I mean a sense of tenderness toward experience, of being held within an intimacy with the things of the world.”
Mark Doty, Still Life with Oysters and Lemon: On Objects and Intimacy

Ursula K. Le Guin
“To make something well is to give yourself to it, to seek wholeness, to follow spirit. To learn to make something well can take your whole life. It’s worth it.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, Steering the Craft: A Twenty-First-Century Guide to Sailing the Sea of Story

Mary Oliver
“It is no use thinking that writing of poems – the actual writing – can accommodate itself to a social setting, even the most sympathetic social setting of a workshop composed of friends. It cannot. The work improves there and often the will to work gets valuable nourishment and ideas. But, for good reasons, the poem requires of the writer not society or instruction, but a patch of profound and unbroken solitude.”
Mary Oliver, A Poetry Handbook

Dorianne Laux
“To write without any awareness of a tradition you are trying to become a part of would be self-defeating. Every artist alive responds to the history of his or her art—borrowing, stealing, rebelling against, and building on what other artists have done.”
Dorianne Laux, The Poet's Companion: A Guide to the Pleasures of Writing Poetry
