The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen
"I found this novel compulsively readable, capturing my attention from page one and holding it until the bitter end. I found myself conflicted through most of it, distrustful of the narrator during critical moments, yet sympathizing with his charac..." Read more of this review »

"A simply marvelous biography of Walker Percy plus so much more.

Paul Bowles
“Whenever he was en route from one place to another, he was able to look at his life with a little more objectivity than usual. It was often on trips that he thought most clearly, and made the decisions that he could not reach when he was stationary.”
Paul Bowles, The Sheltering Sky

Sharon Olds
“I was a late bloomer. But anyone who blooms at all, ever, is very lucky. ”
Sharon Olds

Paul Bowles
“Death is always on the way, but the fact that you don't know when it will arrive seems to take away from the finiteness of life. It's that terrible precision that we hate so much. But because we don't know, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that's so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more. Perhaps not even. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless.”
Paul Bowles, The Sheltering Sky

Jill McCorkle
“If a nuclear disaster occurred, and you had to live out those final painful days just stretched out somewhere thinking about your life--This is who I am. This is what I love. This is what I believe--who would you want hearing your whispers? Or perhaps better: Who do you trust to hear your whispers? Whose breath do you want mingled with your own? Whose flesh still warm beside you?”
Jill McCorkle
