You Don't Have to Say You Love Me by Sherman Alexie

Sherman Alexie opens up a vein to tell the story of his mother's death and his own life. This is a brutally honest story although Alexie is a born storyteller, so he may have lied and embellished a little for the purpose of presenting a deeper truth.

Katherine Boo
“The astonishing thing is that some people are good, and that many others try to be.”
Katherine Boo

Rivka Galchen
“If a story seems too random, or perhaps too brilliant, for a "madman" to have conceived of it himself, then consider that the "author" might be reality and the "madman" just the reader. After all, only reality can escape the limits of our imagination.”
Rivka Galchen, Atmospheric Disturbances

Stacy Schiff
“The Massachusetts elite had read everything in sight, some of it too closely. As would be said of logic-loving Ipswich minister John Wise, those men were not so much the masters as the victims of learning. They had read and reread bushels of witchcraft texts. They parsed legal code. They knew their history. They worked in the sterling name of reason.”
Stacy Schiff, The Witches: Salem, 1692

Siri Hustvedt
“All thoughts of revenge are born of the pain of helplessness. 'I suffer' becomes 'You will suffer'. And let us not lie: Vengeance is invigorating. It focuses and enlivens us, and it quashes grief because it turns the emotion outward. In grief we go to pieces. In revenge we come together as a single pointed weapon aimed at a target. However destructive in the long run, it serves a useful purpose for a time”
Siri Hustvedt, The Blazing World

“Beware O wanderer, the road is walking too.”
