Kristie and 2 other people liked Kate's review of Lincoln in the Bardo:
Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders
"Rarely am I so surprised by a book. Artful, all encompassing, and engaging. "
Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders
"Wholly unique and brilliant. Tragic, morbidly funny, honest, and touching, in true Saunders style. I've never read anything quite like it and probably never will again."

Andie Mitchell
“I struggled between wishing away all the food that had collected on my body as fat and fiercely missing every morsel. I hated the binge last weekend, and I wished I could do it again. I wanted to eat less, and I wanted immediately to eat more.”
Andie Mitchell, It Was Me All Along: A Memoir

Stephen King
“Go then, there are other worlds than these.”
Stephen King, The Gunslinger

Andie Mitchell
“I am a lifetime practitioner of secretive eating, after all. As a kid who entered an empty house after school each day, I felt a desperation to eat. I knew no way other than eating to alleviate the loneliness, to fill in the spaces where comfort and security could have been. Food poured over the millions of cracks in the foundation of my family; it seeped into the fissures; it narrowed the chasms.”
Andie Mitchell, It Was Me All Along: A Memoir

Felicia Day
“Once you tell people exactly what you will and won’t do, it’s amazing how they’ll adjust. Or they won’t. And then an opportunity or relationship goes away. And that’s okay.”
Felicia Day, You're Never Weird on the Internet

Samantha Hunt
“The first two days without a phone, my insides are jumpy and nauseated, a true withdrawal. My veins ache for information from the Internet, distractions from thought. I’m lonely. My neck, lungs, blood hurt like I’m getting a cold. The world happens without me because I’m exiled with no Wi-Fi. I wonder if my shoes have arrived yet. Maybe Lord is trying to reach me with news of his divorce. I have a parade of grotesque urges. I want to push little buttons quickly. I want information immediately. I want to post pictures of Ruth and me smiling into the sun. I want people to like me, like me, like me. I want to buy things without trying them on. I want to look at photos of drunk kids I knew back in high school. And I want it all in my hand. But my cyborg parts have been ripped out. What’s the temperature? I don’t know. What’s the capital of Hawaii? I don’t know anything. I”
Samantha Hunt, Mr. Splitfoot
