I love the art in these books so much. I think instead of putting them in my resale shop I will keep them. I need the end of the trilogy though. Sane or insane? Real or not real?

Alice Hoffman
“Cleaning up after themselves was a low priority for Margo and my mother. They had both recovered from cancer scares, failed marriages, and lost hope; in their opinion, dirt could wait.”
Alice Hoffman, Local Girls

Keri Hulme
“Writing isn’t my life…it’s a lovely part of my life... but it’s not my life. My life is family, friends, fishing, food…things like reading and painting and all the rest of it, and you can’t really prioritize when you’re involved with family or you’re involved in fishing, you can’t say, ‘Oh, I really should be writing.”
Keri Hulme

Flannery O'Connor
“I think it is safe to say that while the South is hardly Christ-centered, it is most certainly Christ-haunted.”
Flannery O'Connor

Laura Lippman
“There's always time to read. Don't trust a writer who doesn't read. It's like eating food prepared by a cook who doesn't eat.”
Laura Lippman

Richard Rodriguez
“I think brown marks a reunion of peoples, an end to ancient wanderings. Rival cultures and creeds conspire with Spring to create children of a beauty, perhaps of a harmony, previously unknown. Or long forgotten. ”
Richard Rodriguez, Brown: The Last Discovery of America
