Grangé schafft es sehr großartig, mich an jeden Ort der Welt gekonnt mitzunehmen. Die nasse Hitze Asiens, die EInsamkeit eines Pariser Reporter-Appartements, die Gleichgültigkeit eines Jugendhauses: In Beschreibungen ist dieser Mann groß.

“Books are more than doctors, of course. Some novels are loving, lifelong companions; some give you a clip around the ear; others are friends who wrap you in warm towels when you've got those autumn blues. And some...well, some are pink candy floss that tingles in your brain for three seconds and leaves a blissful voice. Like a short, torrid love affair.”
Nina George, The Little Paris Bookshop

“We cannot decide to love. We cannot compel anyone to love us. There's no secret recipe, only love itself. And we are at its mercy--there's nothing we can do.”
Nina George, The Little Paris Bookshop

“Do you know that there's a halfway world between each ending and each new beginning? It's called the hurting time, Jean Perdu. It's a bog; it's where your dreams and worries and forgotten plans gather. Your steps are heavier during that time. Don't underestimate the transition, Jeanno, between farewell and new departure. Give yourself the time you need. Some thresholds are too wide to be taken in one stride.”
Nina George, The Little Paris Bookshop
