Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders

A very unusual combination of historical fiction, fantasy, and philosophical thoughts about the nature of death. Outwardly, the story of the death of Abraham Lincoln's young son, Willie, during the early years of Lincoln's presidency. The boy died of ...more

I enjoyed the author's quiet, deliberate pace in developing each story. The stories become fairly bizarre but the tone does not vary - kind of a "if you believe that, I'll tell you another. " I particularly liked the story about a man, apparently und ...more

The novel features a complicated plot but the style of the writing left me unimpressed. The main character seems very immature for an adult professional woman. Too many turns of the story involve drunkenness, indecision, or failure to act. The story' ...more

Guy Kawasaki
“Whitman, for example, self-published (and typeset!) Leaves of Grass. Self-publishing could change from stigma to bragging point—maybe we could change the term to “artisanal publishing” and foster the image of authors lovingly crafting their books with total control over the process.”
Guy Kawasaki, APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur. How to Publish a Book

Frank McCourt
“There are boys here who have to mend their shoes whatever way they can. There are boys in this class with no shoes at all. It’s not their fault and it’s no shame. Our Lord had no shoes. He died shoeless. Do you see Him hanging on the cross sporting shoes? Do you, boys?”
Frank McCourt, Angela's Ashes

“No, I mean who killed him?” “Some guys in masks,” Hani scoffed. “What kind of question is that?” He waved his hand in the air. Sadrists. Al Qaeda. Washed-up Baathists. The masked fog. Men with guns. It made no difference.”
Michael Pitre, Fives and Twenty-Fives

David Mitchell
“How vulgar, this hankering after immortality, how vain, how false. Composers are merely scribblers of cave paintings. One writes music because winter is eternal and because, if one didn't, the wolves and blizzards would be at one's throat all the sooner.”
David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

Richard Farr
“For Aidan and Declan   A father may be forgiven, perhaps, for wishing upon his sons the richest, most dazzling, most extravagant success of all—a life well lived.   So, like, no pressure or anything.”
Richard Farr, The Fire Seekers
