“I think literature is best when it's voicing what we would prefer not to talk about.”
Rick Moody

“Have I mentioned that I expect death around every turn, that every blue sky has a safe sailing out of it, that every bus runs me over, that every low, mean syllable uttered in my direction seems to intimate the violence of murder, that every family seems like an opportunity for ruin and every marriage a ceremony into which calamity will fall and hearts will be broken and lives destroyed and people branded by the mortifications of love? ”
Rick Moody, Demonology

“The past was so past it hurt.”
Rick Moody, The Ice Storm
