Leigh Anne and 175 other people liked Laura's review of The Jane Austen Book Club:
The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler
"I’m convinced the first thing Jane Austen is going to do on the Day of Resurrection is hire a lawyer and sue the philistines who have commandeered her name and characters. However, this book is beneath her notice. A more clichéd combination of unf..." Read more of this review »

Cassandra Clare
“It means 'Shadowhunters: Looking Better in Black Than the Widows of our Enemies Since 1234'.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Bones

Norman Mailer
“The writer can grow as a person or he can shrink. ... His curiosity, his reaction to life must not diminish. The fatal thing is to shrink, to be interested in less, sympathetic to less, desiccating to the point where life itself loses its flavor, and one’s passion for human understanding changes to weariness and distaste.”
Norman Mailer

James Joyce
“History, Stephen said, is a nightmare from which I am trying to awake.”
James Joyce, Ulysses

Marcel Proust
“Every reader, as he reads, is actually the reader of himself. The writer's work is only a kind of optical instrument he provides the reader so he can discern what he might never have seen in himself without this book. The reader's recognition in himself of what the book says is the proof of the book's truth.”
Marcel Proust, Time Regained

Vita Sackville-West

For the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on the hop.”
Vita Sackville-West
