Quotes by Judith Flanders  (?)

“The last refuge of the intelligentsia: when life gets too difficult, go find something to read.”
Judith Flanders, A Murder of Magpies

“There are supposed to be endorphins or whatever that make you feel great when you exercise. I don't think I have any, because I only feel great when I'm lying on the sofa reading a book, possibly while simultaneously eating biscuits.”
Judith Flanders, A Murder of Magpies

“Dickens' London was a place of the mind, but it was also a real place. Much of what we take today to be the marvellous imaginings of a visionary novelist turn out on inspection to be the reportage of a great observer.”
Judith Flanders, The Victorian City: Everyday Life in Dickens' London
