Janet Fitch, White Oleander

A.S. Byatt
“...failure with clay was more complete and more spectacular than with other forms of art. You are subject to the elements... Any one of the old four - earth, air, fire, water - can betray you and melt, or burst, or shatter - months of work into dust and ashes and spitting steam. You need to be a precise scientist, and you need to know how to play with what chance will do to your lovingly constructed surfaces in the heat of the kiln.”
A.S. Byatt, The Children's Book

“جودي بوصلِك
واطفئي حُرقة المشتاق
بصبٍّ مدنفِ يهفو
لقبلةٍ وعناق

أي ذنبٍ في هواكِ
يا منْ ملكتِ الفؤاد ثم سلوته
لماذا الهجر والسلوان
وأنتِ حبَّةُ القلبِ
وأنتِ سلوة الوجدان”
Tahani Shihab

“Her small bedroom was decorated with cheerfully embroidered samplers, which she had stitched herself, and a shelf containing an intricate shellwork tableau. In her parlor, the chimneypiece was crammed with pottery owls, sheep, and dogs, and dishes painted with blue and white Chinoiserie fruits and flowers. Along the picture rail of one wall was an array of brightly colored plates. Dotted about the other walls were half a dozen seascape engravings showing varying climactic conditions, from violent tempest to glassy calm. To the rear was an enormous closet that she used as a storeroom, packed with bottled delicacies such as greengage plums in syrup, quince marmalade, nasturtium pickles, and mushroom catsup, which infused all three rooms with the sharp but tantalizing aromas of vinegar, fruit, and spices.”
Janet Gleeson, The Thief Taker
