What I enjoyed about "My One and Only" was that Kristan Higgins wrote this differently than her other novels in that it didn't follow the structure her others all seem to follow so it felt different. What I wasn't as excited about is that nothing fel ...more

Diane Setterfield
“You are suffering from an ailment that affects ladies of romantic imaginations. Symptoms include fainting, weariness, loss of appetite, low spirits. While on one level the crisis can be ascribed to wandering about in freezing rain without the benefit of adequate waterproofing, the deeper cause is more likely to be found in some emotional trauma.

No tuberculosis, no childhood polio, no unhygienic living conditions. You'll survive.' " pg. 303”
Diane Setterfield, The Thirteenth Tale

John Cheever
“I've been homesick for countries I've never been, and longed to be where I couldn't be.”
John Cheever

George Moore
“We humans are more complicated than animals, and we love through the imagination.”
George Moore

Bill Bryson
“Not one of your pertinent ancestors was squashed, devoured, drowned, starved, stranded, stuck fast, untimely wounded, or otherwise deflected from its life's quest of delivering a tiny charge of genetic material to the right partner at the right moment in order to perpetuate the only possible sequence of hereditary combinations that could result -- eventually, astoundingly, and all too briefly -- in you.”
Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything

Stephen Greenblatt
“I think the writing of literature should give pleasure. What else should it be about? It is not nuclear physics. It actually has to give pleasure or it is worth nothing.”
Stephen Greenblatt
