The Complete Essex County by Jeff Lemire
"I loved this book. It's entry into the Canadian Literary Canon is well deserved. It speaks to the Canadian experience, both rural and urban living, and the importance of hockey to our culture. The art, how the author uses the stark contrast betwee..." Read more of this review »

“I cannot give up chasing after happiness simply because there might be pain down the road.”
Jennifer Beckstrand, Kate's Song

Madhuri Banerjee
“Men don’t want to give the truth. They can’t face the fact that they’re assholes.’ But I realized that women can’t face the truth because often they are really naive. Really. If a woman had so much intuition, wouldn’t she know that the guy was just not that into her? Wouldn’t she realize after her friends told her so? Wouldn’t she comprehend by listening to herself crib about him continuously? Why do so many women ask for the truth when truth is staring at them right in the face? It’s probably because women need to hear it. From him. The man that she has given her heart to. That’s the real reason. She needs to hear him say the words, ‘I don’t love you. We can never have a future.’ And how many men have actually said that? None. Because they always want to leave the window of ‘opportunity’ open for a ‘what if’. And that’s why women will be shattered over a break-up for a far longer time than men. Men don’t need explanations. They think, ‘It wasn’t meant to be.’ And have another glass of beer and go back to working on their Excel sheets in the morning.”
Madhuri Banerjee, Losing My Virginity and Other Dumb Ideas

“You may be the only person left who believes in you, but it's enough. It takes just one star to pierce a universe of darkness. Never give up.”

“When you fall down, rise up. When you fall again, rise up again. This is just a developmental process that makes a healthy baby become a successful man.”
