A very moving story. A beautifully dark, elegiac tapestry of total bleakness. A study in sacrifice on multiple levels, with only abstract possibilities of redemption, if any. A testament to how the experience of violence at an early age can anestheti ...more

I read several books about Charles Manson before I even escaped my teenage years. (Oh, so THAT'S what happened--I hear you cry.) And I remember Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple in the late 1970s when I was a wee little kid. And I remember David Kores ...more

“Maybe I was destined to forever fall in love with people I couldn’t have. Maybe there’s a whole assortment of impossible people waiting for me to find them. Waiting to make me feel the same impossibility over and over again.”
Carol Rifka Brunt, Tell the Wolves I'm Home

Chuck Palahniuk
“The truth is, every son raised by a single mom is pretty much born married. I don't know, but until your mom dies it seems like all the other women in your life can never be more than just your mistress.”
Chuck Palahniuk

Hermann Hesse
“You love nobody. Is that not true?"
"Maybe," said Siddhartha wearily. "I am like you. You cannot love either, otherwise how could you practice love as an art? Perhaps people like us cannot love. Ordinary people can - that is their secret.”
Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha

Hermann Hesse
“Not everyone is allotted the chance to become a personality; most remain types, and never experience the rigor of becoming an individual. But those who do so inevitably discover that these struggles bring them into conflict with the normal life of average people and the traditional values and bourgeois conventions that they uphold. A personality is the product of a clash between two opposing forces: the urge to create a life of one's own and the insistence by the world around us that we conform. Nobody can develop a personality unless he undergoes revolutionary experiences. The extent of those experiences differs, of course, from person to person, as does the capacity to lead a life that is truly personal and unique.”
Hermann Hesse, Soul of the Age: Selected Letters, 1891-1962

Hermann Hesse
“I saw that Haller was a genius of suffering and that in the meaning of many sayings of Nietzsche he had created within himself with positive genius a boundless and frightful capacity for pain.”
Hermann Hesse
