The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney

The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney
"Well I hated the ending in the respect that it never addressed the title subject of the book. Lives were wrapped up tidily but the focus Nest was not. I liked the story of the family overall but was just irritated that things just sort of went on..." Read more of this review »

Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult
"Almost 5 stars.

I used to read everything Jodi Picoult offered up, and she was one of my favorite fiction writers. I have other favorites now, but she can still get under my skin and into my head like the best of them. Always timely, always controv..." Read more of this review »

“They [stag's eyes] were moist and pink, which gave then a strangely intelligent mien--kind, sad eyes that seemed to carry with them the secret wisdom of the earth.”
Christopher Scotton, The Secret Wisdom of the Earth

“A lesson taught with humor is a lesson retained.”
Ruth Westheimer

Ian McEwan
“He closed his eyes. This bed was a wedding gift from friends he had not seen in years. He tried to remember their names, but they were gone. In it, or on it, his marriage had begun and, six years later, ended. He recognized a musical creak when he moved his legs, he smelled Julie on the sheets and banked-up pillows, her perfume and the close, soapy essence that characterized her newly washed linen. Here he had taken part in the longest, most revealing, and, later, most desolate conversations of his life. He had had the best sex ever here, and the worst wakeful nights. He had done more reading here than in any other single place - he remembered Anna Karenina and Daniel Deronda in one week of illness. He had never lost his temper so thoroughly anywhere else, nor had been so tender, protective, comforting, nor, since early childhood, been so cared for himself. Here his daughter had been conceived and born. On this side of the bed. Deep in the mattress were the traces of pee from her early-morning visits. She used to climb between then, sleep a little, then wake them with her chatter, her insistence on the day beginning. As they clung to their last fragments of dreams, she demanded the impossible: stories, poems, songs, invented catechisms, physical combat, tickling. Nearly all evidence of her existence, apart from photographs, they had destroyed or given away. All the worst and the best things that had ever happened to him had happened here. This was where he belonged. Beyond all immediate considerations, like the fact that his marriage was more or less finished, there was his right to lie here now in the marriage bed.”
Ian McEwan, The Child in Time

Ian McEwan
“For children, childhood is timeless. It is always the present. Everything is in the present tense. Of course, they have memories. Of course, time shifts a little for them and Christmas comes round in the end. But they don’t feel it. Today is what they feel, and when they say ‘When I grow up,’ there is always an edge of disbelief—how could they ever be other than what they are?”
Ian McEwan, The Child in Time

“You only have to forgive once. To resent, you have to do it all day, every day. You have to keep remembering all the bad things. I would have to make a list, a very, very long list and make sure I hated the people on it the right amount. That I did a very proper job of hating too.”
M.L . Stedman
