My goodness, I love Andrew Rannells. These essays cover the period of his life from his first steps into performing as a child in Nebraska to his Broadway debut. Obviously I know how it all turned out for him but I still found myself rooting for him ...more

Robert Jackson Bennett
“Life is full of beautiful dangers, dangerous beauties," says Sigrud. He stares into the sky, and the white sunlight glints off his many scars. "They wound us in ways we cannot see: an injury ripples out, like a stone dropped in water, touching moments years into the future.”
Robert Jackson Bennett, City of Stairs

Katherine Addison
“ 'In our inmost and secret heart, which you ask us to bare to you, we wish to banish them as we were banished, to a cold and lonely house, in the charge of a man who hated us. And we wish them trapped there as we were trapped.'

'You consider that unjust, Serenity?'

'We consider it cruel,' Maia said. 'And we do not think that cruelty is ever just.' ”
Katherine Addison, The Goblin Emperor

Tad Williams
“But that is enough of such worrying. The river is waiting, and our hearts must be light, so we can faster travel.”
Tad Williams, The Dragonbone Chair

Tony Kushner
“We won't die secret deaths anymore. The world only spins forward. We will be citizens. The time has come. Bye now. You are fabulous creatures, each and every one. And I bless you: More Life. The Great Work Begins.”
Tony Kushner, Angels in America

Neil Gaiman
“Nobody looks like what they really are on the inside. You don’t. I don’t. People are much more complicated than that. It’s true of everybody.”
Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane
