Fooled, and not for the first time, by the genre of a Stephen King book. The first 90% of this fictional memoir comes through loud and clear as a mystery, sci-fi at best. It's only the last hour of reading that you get to the nitty gritty, nightmare- ...more

Pat Frank
“ 'I think you ought to go to New York or Chicago or San Francisco or any city with character and vitality. You should go to work. This place is no good for you, Randy. The air is like soup and the people are like noodles. You're vegetating. I don't want a vegetable. I want a man.' " - Lib McGovern”
Pat Frank, Alas, Babylon

Jack Kerouac
“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”
Jack Kerouac, On the Road

Nick Hornby
“It's no good pretending that any relationship has a future if your record collections disagree violently or if your favorite films wouldn't even speak to each other if they met at a party.”
Nick Hornby

David Mitchell
“Green is made of yellow and blue, nothing else, but when you look at green, where’ve the yellow and the blue gone? Somehow this is to do with Moran’s dad. Somehow this is to do with everyone and everything.”
David Mitchell, Black Swan Green

David Mitchell
“A half-read book is a half-finished love affair.”
David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas
