Foster by Claire Keegan
"Spare, simple, devastating. Keegan is one of the best since Cheever at evoking emotion through the description of simple gestures, or a glimpse of landscape. At its core "Foster" is a straightforward tale of love and loss, but a sense of dread pos..." Read more of this review »

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”
Søren Kierkegaard

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
Marilyn Monroe

“Love at first sight is easy to understand; it's when two people have been looking at each other for a lifetime that it becomes a miracle.”
Amy Bloom

“Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but - I hope - into a better shape.”
Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
