A marvellous, funny, and terribly sad and awful story of the ongoing holocaust in the Dominican Republic. It is a triumph of writing that Diaz could make so much of this book so funny!

This book is the perfect antidote for those James Clavell Shogun pot boilers from the 70s! Mitchell hacks away at the post colonial tropes and orientalism with a samurai sword. It's a deceptively simple historical fiction, but when you get to the end ...more

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. How would it work exactly? And how would either of them, knowing nothing of their lover's body, needs and desires, ever be able to satisfy the other?”
Chris Moriarty, Spin Control

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

Dorothy Parker
“If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to.”
Dorothy Parker

Charles Yu
“Worry was my mother's mechanic, her mechanism for engaging with the machinery of living. Worry was an anchor for her, a hook, something to clutch on to in the world.

Charles Yu, How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe

Dorothy Parker
“The cure for boredom is curiosity.
There is no cure for curiosity.”
Dorothy Parker
