Lewis Buzbee
“Maturity and experience shouldn't stop one from craving silly things like sliding down bannisters.”
Lewis Buzbee, The Haunting of Charles Dickens

Kenzaburō Ōe

“More recently, books, especially paperbacks, have been printed in massive and inexpensive editions. For the price of a modest meal you can ponder the decline and fall of the Roman Empire, the origin of species, the interpretation of dreams, the nature of things. Books are like seeds. They can lie dormant for centuries and then flower in the most unpromising soil.”
Carl Sagan, Cosmos

Alan Bradley, I Am Half-Sick of Shadows
