Leah Hager Cohen
“The truth beyond the fetish's glimmering mirage is the relationship of laborer to product; it is the social account of how that object came to be. In this view every commodity, beneath the mantle of its pricetag, is a hieroglyph ripe for deciphering, a riddle whose solution lies in the story of the worker who made it and the conditions under which it was made.”
Leah Hager Cohen, Glass, Paper, Beans: Revelations on the Nature and Value of Ordinary Things

John Lanchester
“The idea of luxury, even the word "luxury," was important to Arabella. Luxury meant something that was by definition overpriced, but was so nice, so lovely, in itself that you did not mind, in fact was so lovely that the expensiveness became part of the point, part of the distinction between the people who could not afford a thing and the select few who not only could, but also understood the desirability of paying so much for it. Arabella knew that there were thoughtlessly rich people who could afford everything; she didn't see herself as one of them but instead as one of an elite who both knew what money meant and could afford the things they wanted; and the knowledge of what money meant gave the drama of high prices a special piquancy. She loved expensive things because she knew what their expensiveness meant. She had a complete understanding of the signifiers.”
John Lanchester, Capital

Will Advise

Fredrik Backman, The Deal of a Lifetime

Christopher Hitchens, Hitch 22: A Memoir

Sarah J. Maas
“I whispered to the lurking dark behind me, 'What is your price?'
Company. Send me company.

I opened my mouth, but them said, 'To- eat?'

A laugh that made my skin crawl. To tell me of life.
'It's a bargain,' I breathed. The skin along my left forearm tingled. The thing behind me... I could have sworn I felt it smile.”
Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Wings and Ruin
