This book was recommended by a friend -- and from all the hoo-ha on the back cover I was supposed to be reading a literary masterpiece. If that was the writer's intention, he was certainly punching above his weight. It's a perfectly good holiday myst ...more

Alan Turing by Andrew Hodges
"That's certainly cleared up a lot of the questions I had following the film. It concerns me that Cumberbatch's Turing seemed to stray dramatically from biographical evidence. The film paints him in a dangerously stereotypical way, as the lone geni..." Read more of this review »

There is no cure for curiosity.”
Ellen Parr

Shirley Hazzard
“Reverie by the open window in the sweet futility of a mild evening was yet to strike the Australian male as a requirement. (There would be the question of fly screens, for one thing.)”
Shirley Hazzard, The Great Fire

Geraldine Brooks
“I felt the reckless abandon of one who knows she stands already among the damned. "Why not, then, another sin?”
Geraldine Brooks, Caleb's Crossing

Shirley Hazzard
“When you realize someone is trying to hurt you, it hurts less."
"Unless you love them.”
Shirley Hazzard, The Transit of Venus

Chris Moriarty
“Arkady looked at the other man. he felt that he was actually seeing him as a physical being for the first time.....He tried to imagine that body with Bella, with any woman, and found the idea...not repulsive exactly, but incomprehensible.

Chris Moriarty, Spin Control
