Aoibheann McCann The Twits. They were so well suited. They really made me laugh with their revenge plots against each other. They were horrific.

“I dislike Tolkien, another Oxonian Old Norse obsessive, with his war games and made-up language in a world without women.”

“It's only, he said, that one doesn't like to think of one's grandchildren facing greater disadvantages than one's children. Well stop voting Tory, you prick, Emma did not say.”
Sarah Moss, The Tidal Zone

If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers, the second greatest favor
“If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers, the second greatest favor you can do them is to present them with copies of The Elements of Style. The first greatest, of course, is to shoot them now, while they’re happy.”
Dorothy Parker

Toni Morrison
“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
Toni Morrison

Claire Messud
“Sometimes I felt that growing up and being a girl was about learning to be afraid. Not paranoid, exactly, but always alert and aware, like checking out the exits in the movie theatre or the fire escape in a hotel. You came to know, in a way you hadn't as a kid, that the body you inhabited was vulnerable, imperfectly fortified. On TV, in the papers, in books and movies, it isn't ever men being raped or kidnapped or bludgeoned or dismembered or burned with acid. But in stories and crime shows and TV series and movies and in life too, it's going on all the time, all around you. So you learn, in your mind, that your body needs to be protected. It's both precious and totally dispensable, depending on whom you encounter.”
Claire Messud, The Burning Girl

Ciaran ohuiginn I'm reading a few books at the moment including the girl on the train, the girl with the dragon tattoo and the Racketeer by J. Grisham. I used to read a lot more when I was younger but I'm getting back into it more now!
