“Having contact sheets for all sorts of episodes in your life seemed to me intriguing and desirable. So much of my own history is beclouded by time, but a few sharp rays, in the form of pictures, falling upon a given day would resuscitate whole contexts. And from this archipelago of moments, scenes, episodes, you could see the larger tectonic movements of your life forming and unforming. You would be reminded of who you are. Or at least of who you were.”
Thomas Beller

“Sometimes I wonder if a friendship in which the common ground is all that is bad about each person is a friendship worth having.”
Thomas Beller, The Time Out Book Of New York Short Stories

“In the Glass family stories, the mother is portrayed as hungry for her son’s correspondence and news. She is portrayed as insatiable for this, in fact, and for this reason her son Zooey is in a constant state of mortified retreat. This theme plays itself out in many of Salinger’s stories, the reticent brother and son who doesn’t keep in touch.”
Thomas Beller, J.D. Salinger: The Escape Artist
