After Dark by Haruki Murakami
"Last night, I was reading After Dark by Murakami more or less according to the time course indicated in the novel. I found myself greatly disoriented when at one point I looked at the time and I suddenly seemed to have plunged into the past."

Margaret Atwood
“I used to think of my body as an instrument, of pleasure, or a means of transportation, or an implement for the accomplishment of my will.”
Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale

Margaret Atwood
“When I get out of here, if I'm ever able to set this down, in any form, even in the form of one voice to another, it will be a reconstruction then too, yet another remove. It's impossible to say a thing exactly the way it was, because what you say can never be exact, you always have to leave something out, there are too may parts, sides, crosscurrents, nuances; too many gestures, which could mean this or that, too many shapes which can never be fully described, too many flavors, in the air or on the tongue, half-colors, too many. But if you happen to be a man, sometime in the future, and you've made it this far, please remember: you will never be subject to the temptation or feeling you must forgive, a man, as a woman. It's difficult to resist, believe me. But remember that forgiveness too is a power. To beg for it is a power, and to withhold it or bestow it is a power, perhaps the greatest.

Maybe none of this is about control. Maybe it isn't really about who can own whom, who can do what to whom and get away with it, even as far as death. Maybe it isn't about who can sit and who has to kneel or stand or lie down, legs spread open. Maybe it's about who can do what to whom and be forgiven for it. Never tell me it amounts to the same thing.”
Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale

Margaret Atwood
“But people will do anything rather than admit that their lives have no meaning. No use, that is. No plot.”
Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale

Margaret Atwood
“Not real can tell us about real.”
Margaret Atwood, Oryx and Crake
