This August, understand what never opens. You thought you knew about blooming, about ditches lavish with daylilies. But these five fused petals live on refusal, clamped shut like a mailbox hoarding its letters. Each year the river shifts, the old spruce—tindery, brittle—comes closer to falling in. Still, there are days you love it all, not […]

What an incredibly beautiful book. I'd been reading more and more references to Paula Modersohn-Becker, the German artist who died at 31, at the beginning of the 20th century, leaving an incredible number of gorgeous, alive, luminous paintings, inclu ...more

Totally absorbing and pleasurable, just as much so as The Moon and Sixpence, but with a main character who couldn't be more different from Strickland. There is something deeply lovable, and definitely memorable, about Rosie. I was so happily immersed ...more

I was reluctant to finish this book - I loved being inside the world of the poems. It took me a little while to really engage with them - perhaps because they're unique, and I wasn't sure how to approach them - but after I did, I was immersed and adm ...more

Franz Kafka
“A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us.”
Franz Kafka

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

Annie Dillard
“Similarly, the impulse to keep to yourself what you have learned is not only shameful, it is destructive. Anything you do not give freely and abundantly becomes lost to you. You open your safe and find ashes.”
Annie Dillard, The Writing Life

Annie Dillard
“She read books as one would breathe air, to fill up and live.”
Annie Dillard, The Living
