“Remember when I told you I knew about you? You interrupted me. I wasn’t going to say I sympathized with you; I was going to say I didn’t give a damn. Life is hard for everyone, some more than others. But the damage you cause to other people, that’s on you. Your pain has made you into a monster.”
Layton Green, The Diabolist

“When I read and when I write, I need at least one character who is a decent soul—flawed, but striving to be good—to hold my interest, and probably even to drive the story.”
Layton Green

“Sometimes everyone needed to be around that friend who loved you no matter what, despite your colossal, irreversible character flaws. Not family, he thought, because they have to love you, but a friend dealing with the absurdities of life just like him, and who has chosen him to share them with.”
Layton Green, The Brothers Three
