Sarah Blake shared a note and highlight from
The Guest Book by Sarah Blake
Ogden had understood that every life had at its center a beginning that was not birth, a moment when the catch on the lock in one’s life opens, and out it comes, starting forward.
You know that feeling--as a child or as a teenager--when you are suddenly aware that something big is happening, something important, something that will change you? A moment when you are conscious that you have stumbled into your future? That's what I was imagining here. I had been struggling with the nature of Ogden and Elsa's relationship, and decided not to give them a big love affair, but rather make theirs a relationship that was eye-opening for Ogden, though not necessarily for Elsa.

“every story - love or war - is a story about looking left when we should have been looking right.”
Sarah Blake, The Postmistress

“It is the story that lies around the edges of the photographs, or at the end of newspaper account. It's about the lies we tell others to protect them, and about the lies we tell ourselves in order not to acknowledge what we can't bear: that we are alive, for instance, and eating lunch, while bombs are falling, and refugees are crammed into camps, and the news comes toward us every hour of the day.

Sarah Blake, The Postmistress

“Sand was dribbling out of the bag of her attention, faster and faster.”
Sarah Blake
