On Writing by Stephen King
"Some people idolize Stephen King, others say his work is dreadfully overhyped, but love him or loathe him, it can't be denied that's he's a very successful writer. While his books are often formulaic and full of tropes, their interconnected univer..." Read more of this review »

This series is mesmerizing me!

I fell into this, the third Frieda Klein mystery, and came out of it blinking at the reality of the real world.

Objectively, Frieda should be an annoying character. She doesn't take care of herself, though sh

Ann and 11 other people liked Rebecca's review of A Single Thread:
A Single Thread by Tracy Chevalier
"Chevalier’s best since Falling Angels; possibly her best ever, though I’d have to reread Angels to decide for sure – it’s got the Victorian graveyard setting so sure to lure me in. The subject matter of the 1930s-set A Single Thread sounds like it could easily be pa..." Read more of this review »

Barbara Kingsolver
“The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.”
Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams

Barbara Kingsolver
“The friend who holds your hand and says the wrong thing is made of dearer stuff than the one who stays away.”
Barbara Kingsolver

Barbara Kingsolver
“Don’t try to make life a mathematics problem with yourself in the center and everything coming out equal. When you’re good, bad things can still happen. And if you’re bad, you can still be lucky.”
Barbara Kingsolver, The Poisonwood Bible

Dennis Lehane
“Happiness doesn't lie in conspicuous consumption and the relentless amassing of useless crap. Happiness lies in the person sitting beside you and your ability to talk to them. Happiness is clear-headed human interaction and empathy. Happiness is home. And home is not a house-home is a mythological conceit. It is a state of mind. A place of communion and unconditional love. It is where, when you cross its threshold, you finally feel at peace.”
Dennis Lehane

Charles Baudelaire
“Genius is nothing more nor less than childhood recaptured at will.”
Charles Baudelaire, The Painter of Modern Life and Other Essays
