I think a good subtitle to Go Set A Watchman might be To Kill A Mockingbird and Zombies. Because when you begin to read GSAW and hear the voice of the 26 year old Jean Louise, you find yourself plunged into an alternative Maycomb. And once Jean Louis ...more

" I'm already a bit into it. I'm trying to keep an open mind and remember it isn't a sequel to TKAM: this is a completely different book. "

E.M. Forster
“I cannot help thinking that there is something to admire in everyone, even if you do not approve of them.”
E.M. Forster

E.M. Forster
“Human beings have their great chance in the novel.”
E.M. Forster, Aspects of the Novel

E.M. Forster
“But this time I'm not to blame; I want you to believe that. I simply slipped into those violets. No, I want to be really truthful. I am a little to blame. The sky, you know, was gold, and the ground all blue, and for a moment he looked like some one in a book.”
E.M. Forster, A Room with a View

Rebecca Stead
“Mom says each of us has a veil between ourselves and the rest of the world, like a bride wears on her wedding day, except this kind of veil is invisible. We walk around happily with these invisible veils hanging down over our faces. The world is kind of blurry, and we like it that way. But sometimes our veils are pushed away for a few moments, like there's a wind blowing it from our faces. And when the veil lifts, we can see the world as it really is, just for those few seconds before it settles down again. We see all the beauty, and cruelty, and sadness, and love. But mostly we are happy not to. Some people learn to lift the veil themselves. Then they don't have to depend on the wind anymore.”
Rebecca Stead, When You Reach Me

E.M. Forster
“She would only point out the salvation that was latent in his own soul, and in the soul of every man. Only connect! That was the whole of her sermon. Only connect the prose and the passion, and both will be exalted, and human love will be seen at its height. Live in fragments no longer. Only connect, and the beast and the monk, robbed of the isolation that is life to either, will die.”
E.M. Forster, Howards End
