J by Howard Jacobson
"Howard Jacobson's latest novel left me scratching my head. Having never read Jacobson before I had no idea what to expect - I only knew that he has previously won the Booker in 2010 for The Finkler Question.

In a short introductory blurb, J is desc..." Read more of this review »

Victor Hugo
“Life's great happiness is to be convinced we are loved.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

L. Frank Baum
“That proves you are unusual,' returned the Scarecrow; 'and I am convinced that the only people worthy of consideration in this world are the unusual ones. For the common folks are like the leaves of a tree, and live and die unnoticed.”
L. Frank Baum, The Marvelous Land Of Oz

Victor Hugo
“The power of a glance has been so much abused in love stories, that it has come to be disbelieved in. Few people dare now to say that two beings have fallen in love because they have looked at each other. Yet it is in this way that love begins, and in this way only.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Victor Hugo
“It was SHE. Whoever has loved knows all the radiant meaning contained in the three letters of this word ‘she.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Louisa May Alcott
“That is a good book it seems to me, which is opened with expectation and closed with profit.”
Louisa May Alcott
