Erika Swyler

Jon Krakauer
“Using data gathered in 2011, the CDC study estimated that across all age groups, 19.3 percent of American women “have been raped in their lifetimes” and that 1.6 percent of American women—nearly two and a half million individuals—“reported that they were raped in the 12 months preceding the survey.”
Jon Krakauer, Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town

Kate Atkinson
“The whole edifice of civilization turned out to be constructed from an unstable mix of quicksand and imagination.”
Kate Atkinson, A God in Ruins

Cecilia Ekbäck
“Late autumn this year had violence in her hair, angry crimson, orange, and yellow. The trees wrestled to free themselves of their cloaks, crumpled up their old leaves and threw them straight out into the string wind rather than just let them fall to the ground. Dry leaves ran across the ground with the crackle of fire.”
Cecilia Ekbäck, Wolf Winter

“Be merciful and leave this place. Leave this country to rest in forgetfulness.”
Kazuo Ishiguro, The Buried Giant
