More of Sophie's books…
Richard Yates
“The Revolutionary Hill Estates had not been designed to accommodate a tragedy. Even at night, as if on purpose, the development held no looming shadows and no gaunt silhouettes. It was invincibly cheerful, a toyland of white and pastel houses whose bright, uncurtained windows winked blandly through a dappling of green and yellow leaves … A man running down these streets in desperate grief was indecently out of place.”
Richard Yates, Revolutionary Road

Anne Fadiman
“Books wrote our life story, and as they accumulated on our shelves (and on our windowsills, and underneath our sofa, and on top of our refrigerator), they became chapters in it themselves.”
Anne Fadiman, Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader

Isabel Allende
“The longer I live, the more uninformed I feel. Only the young have an explanation for everything.”
Isabel Allende, City of the Beasts

Anne Fadiman
“It has long been my belief that everyone's library contains an Odd Shelf. On this shelf rests a small, mysterious corpus of volumes whose subject matter is completely unrelated to the rest of the library, yet which, upon closer inspection, reveals a good deal about its owner.”
Anne Fadiman, Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader

Adam Gopnik
“The romance of your child's childhood may be the last romance you can give up.”
Adam Gopnik, Paris to the Moon
