John Irving
“In a school community, someone who reads a book for some secretive purpose, other than discussing it, is strange. What was she reading for?”
John Irving, The World According to Garp

Gene Weingarten
“Let’s put to rest one cliché. You can sell refrigerators to Eskimos. The people of Savoonga are Yupiks, the westernmost of the Eskimo tribes, closer to Siberians than American Eskimos in their appearance, and their customs, and their distinctive, liquidly sibilant native language.

“A sense of humor is a measurement of the extent to which you realize that you are trapped in a world almost entirely devoid of reason. Laughter is how you release the anxiety you feel at this knowledge.”
Gene Weingarten, The Fiddler in the Subway: The Story of the World-Class Violinist Who Played for Handouts. . . And Other Virtuoso Performances by America's Foremost Feature Writer

P.G. Wodehouse
“I'm bound to say that New York's a topping place to be exiled in. Everybody was awfully good to me, and there seemed to be plenty of things going on, and I'm a wealthy bird, so everything was fine.”
P.G. Wodehouse, My Man Jeeves

Evelyn Waugh
“Instead of this absurd division into sexes they ought to class people as static and dynamic.”
Evelyn Waugh
