The Marathon Conspiracy by Gary Corby
"Well I have to say, this book is the best in the series so far. Corby is really getting the hang of writing these murder mysteries. He neatly combines: the development of young, aristocratic girls to adulthood; the social workings of marriage and..." Read more of this review »

Julian Barnes
“Books say: She did this because. Life says: She did this. Books are where things are explained to you; life is where things aren't. I'm not surprised some people prefer books.”
Julian Barnes, Flaubert's Parrot

George Sand
“One is happy once one knows the necessary ingredients of happiness: simple tastes, a certain degree of courage, self denial to a point, love of work, and above all, a clear conscience.”
George Sand, Correspondance, 1812-1876, Volume 5

Louisa May Alcott
“Your father, Jo. He never loses patience, never doubts or complains, but always hopes, and works and waits so cheerfully that one is ashamed to do otherwise before him.”
Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

Steven Saylor
“Men like Caesar and Pompey--they're not heroes, Meto. They're monsters. They call their greed and ambition "honour," and to satisfy their so-called honour they'll tear the world apart.

Caesar's reasons and mine are different only in degree. The consequences and the suffering still spread to the innocent (Gordianus the Finder to his son Meto)”
Steven Saylor, Rubicon
