“There are two management styles at the Record and a constant struggle between the two: the advocates of ambiguity, and the supporters of the more aggressive “mushroom model” (keep them in the dark, and feed them shit).”
Amy Rowland, The Transcriptionist

“If we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel’s heart beat, and we should die of that roar which lies on the other side of silence.”
Amy Rowland, The Transcriptionist

“The room is the color of old opossum or new pumice, the color of newspaper without ink.”
Amy Rowland, The Transcriptionist

Thomas Bruso Amy,

I love THE TRANSCRIPTIONIST! I downloaded the audio version and am enjoying it. The narrator's performance is wonderful. Are you writing another novel?

All the best,
