I read this book as an antidote to 13 Conversations Why and the stupid conversations about mental health and suicide that had formed around it. It did not disappoint - it's beautiful and captures the full range of emotions involved. It lightly handle ...more

Chad Harbach
“What would he say to her, if he was going to speak truly? He didn't know. Talking was like throwing a baseball. You couldn't plan it out beforehand. You just had to let go and see what happened. You had to throw out words without knowing whether anyone woud catch them -- you had to throw out words you knew no one would catch. You had to send your words out where they weren't yours anymore. It felt better to talk with a ball in your hand, it felt better to let the ball do the talking. But the world, the nonbaseball world, the world of love and sex and jobs and friends, was made of words.”
Chad Harbach, The Art of Fielding

“There are no whys in a person's life, and very few hows. In the end, in search of useful wisdom, you could only come back to the most hackneyed concepts, like kindness, forbearance, infinite patience. Solomon and Lincoln: This too shall pass. Damn right it will. Or Chekhov: Nothing passes. Equally true.”
Chad Harbach, The Art of Fielding

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“There is no peace, I'm sorry to say. We find it. We lose it. We find it again. We lose it again.”
Kurt Vonnegut Jr., Slapstick, or Lonesome No More!

“I rather like the smell of absurdity in the morning.”
Tom Robbins, Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates

Tom Robbins
“On the right side-panel of the verbose and somewhat tautological box of Cheerios, it is written,

If you are not satisfied with the quality and/or performance of the Cheerios in this box, send name, address, and reason for dissatisfaction—along with entire boxtop and price paid—to: General Mills, Inc., Box 200-A, Minneapolis, Minn., 55460. Your purchase price will be returned.

It isn’t enough that there is a defensive tone to those words, a slant of doubt, an unappetizing broach of the subject of money, but they leave the reader puzzling over exactly what might be meant by the “performance” of the Cheerios.

Could the Cheerios be in bad voice? Might not they handle well on curves? Do they ejaculate too quickly? Has age affected their timing or are they merely in a mid-season slump? Afflicted with nervous exhaustion or broken hearts, are the Cheerios smiling bravely, insisting that the show must go on?”
Tom Robbins, Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates
