Today Will Be Different by Maria Semple
"I had been enjoying the first part of this novel, and then about halfway through I abruptly hit a wall where the quirkiness and mania and frenzied story jumping got so aggravating that I abandoned the book in frustration.

Haruki Murakami
“According to Chekhov," Tamaru said, rising from his chair, "once a gun appears in a story, it has to be fired."

Haruki Murakami, 1Q84

“Criticism is the fountainhead of control.”
