"It's just a smart fast-paced thriller. The normals against the abnormals. Especially when you are looking for pure fun escapism. "

William Faulkner
“Like a long sighing of wind in trees it begins, then they sweep into sight, borne now upon a cloud of phantom dust. They rush past, forwardleaning in the saddles, with brandished arms, beneath whipping ribbons from slanted and eager lances; with tumult and soundless yelling they sweep past like a tide whose crest is jagged with the wild heads of horses and the brandished arms of men like the crater of the world in explosion.”
William Faulkner, Light in August

Walter Kirn
“He lived in two modes, the apparent and the veiled, and in two realms, the opera and the sewer, and he shuttled between them like a genie.”
Walter Kirn, Blood Will Out: The True Story of a Murder, a Mystery, and a Masquerade

Halldór Laxness
“They were allowed a little touch at each of the books, but only with their fingertips tonight, literature cannot bear dirty hands; first we'll have to back each volume with paper, the covers must not get dirty, nor the spines slit, books are the nation's most precious possession, books have preserved the nation's life through monopoly, pestilence, and volcanic eruption, not to mention the tons of snow that have lain over the country's widely scattered homesteads for the major part of every one of its thousand years.”
Halldór Laxness, Independent People

Nic Pizzolatto
“When it worked, reading could take away the burden of time.”
Nic Pizzolatto, Galveston

Nic Pizzolatto
“We come here to tell stories so that we can manage the past without being swallowed by it.”
Nic Pizzolatto, Galveston
