“Nobody says the words anymore, but somehow the violence still remains.”
Brendan Kiely, All American Boys

“The problem is that you don't always get to write your own story. You get written into some stories, and if ask why, there isn't an answer. You don't have any control, because the forces at work are too large to confront, and sometimes too large even to understand.”
Brendan Kiely, The Gospel of Winter

“Le digo que hace apenas cinco días, en lo alto de una colina, Corrina y yo decidimos hacer este viaje juntos; que el alzhéimer del abuelo le está devorando el cerebro y los recuerdos, y que quiero llevarlo de vuelta a Ithaca por última vez, para que vea la iglesia donde se casó, antes de que la enfermedad le borre para siempre el recuerdo de la abuela; y que es muy injusto que suceda algo así en un mundo que te arrebata con tanta facilidad a tus seres queridos, porque de ese modo no sólo pierdes a las personas que amas, sino también sus recuerdos, como si nunca hubiesen existido.”
Brendan Kiely, The Last True Love Story
