Topics Mentioning This Author

“A journey to nowhere also begins with a single step”
chuck pahlaniuk

“Whenever someone who knows you disappears, you lose one version of yourself. Yourself as you were seen, as you were judged to be. Lover or enemy, mother or friend, those who know us construct us, and their several knowings slant the different facets of our characters like diamond-cutter's tools. Each such loss is a step leading to the grave, where all versions blend and end.”
Salman Rushdie, The Ground Beneath Her Feet

“Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.”
Groucho Marx, The Essential Groucho: Writings For By And About Groucho Marx

“Until recently I always thought that 'Cat Boarding' was the way America tortured their felines.”

“This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.”
