Beautiful and stunningly original. I can't remember the last time I read a book so eloquent about the sorrow and joy of life in equal measure.

Frank O'Hara
“Now I am quietly waiting for the catastrophe of my personality to seem beautiful again, and interesting, and modern.”
Frank O'Hara, Meditations in an Emergency

Michael Cunningham
“I don't have any regrets, really, except that one. I wanted to write about you, about us, really. Do you know what I mean? I wanted to write about everything, the life we're having and the lives we might have had. I wanted to write about all the ways we might have died.”
Michael Cunningham, The Hours

Jonathan Safran Foer
“(What are your ghosts like?)
(They are on the insides of the lids of my eyes.)
(This is also where my ghosts reside.)
(You have ghosts?)
(Of course I have ghosts.)
(But you are a child.)
(I am not a child.)
(But you have not known love.)
(These are my ghosts, the spaces amid love.)”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

“Think of this - that the writer wrote alone, and the reader read alone, and they were alone with each other.”
A.S. Byatt, Possession

Jeffrey Eugenides
“Can you see me? All of me? Probably not. No one ever really has.”
Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex
