There is only wind and rain, and something else—a low howl, maybe, a snapping—probably just wind in the trees, probably nothing at all—so you go out into the storm to find her.(less)

Strange Cravings

It’s amazing how much has changed in the weeks since my last article in which I wrote about how fast COVID-19 was spreading and how policy makers weren’t taking it seriously. Since then, the number of deaths doubled every week. The problem became impossible to ignore. Government officials reacted, thankfully, better late than never. But now, in some cases, they’ve gone too far. I mean, come on, wh

Later by Stephen King
"You know it’s a good read when you are drinking coffee after midnight to stay up and rip through more pages because you’re exhausted from a long day but hopelessly hooked.

"I’m always more than thrilled when King comes out with a new book and I will happily read anything he writes. Now mix together King and a coming of age story and I’m practically drooling at the thought! This is classic King at his best, taking us alo" Read more of this review »

“The truth is life is full of joy and full of great sorrow, but you can't have one without the other.”

Carol Rifka Brunt
“I really wondered why people were always doing what they didn't like doing. It seemed like life was a sort of narrowing tunnel. Right when you were born, the tunnel was huge. You could be anything. Then, like, the absolute second after you were born, the tunnel narrowed down to about half that size. You were a boy, and already it was certain you wouldn't be a mother and it was likely you wouldn't become a manicurist or a kindergarten teacher. Then you started to grow up and everything you did closed the tunnel in some more. You broke your arm climbing a tree and you ruled out being a baseball pitcher. You failed every math test you ever took and you canceled any hope of being a scientist. Like that. On and on through the years until you were stuck. You'd become a baker or a librarian or a bartender. Or an accountant. And there you were. I figured that on the day you died, the tunnel would be so narrow, you'd have squeezed yourself in with so many choices, that you just got squashed.”
Carol Rifka Brunt, Tell the Wolves I'm Home

Lee Child
“lawn. Yard work summed up the whole futile procedure. First you spend a lot of time and money making the grass grow, just so you can spend a lot of time and money cutting it down again a little while later. You curse about it getting too long, and then you worry about it staying too short and you sprinkle expensive water on it all summer, and expensive chemicals all fall.”
Lee Child, Tripwire

Lee Child
“She looked away. Her name was Marilyn. Marilyn Stone. She had been married to Chester for a long time. She knew it all. She had no real details, no real proof, no inclusion, but she knew it all anyway. How could she not know? She had eyes and a brain.”
Lee Child, Tripwire
