Book cover for The Second Confession (Nero Wolfe, #15)
Wolfe was arrogant and vain, grouchy and lazy, and as far as I could tell, his only interest in life was making a lot of money so he could eat, raise orchids, sit in comfortable chairs, avoid travel, boss Archie Goodwin around, and impress ...more
Andrew Sean Greer
“Strange to be almost fifty, no? I feel like I just understood how to be young."
"Yes! It's like the last day in a foreign country. You finally figure out where to get coffee, and drinks, and a good steak. And then you have to leave. And you won't ever be back.”
Andrew Sean Greer, Less

J.D. Vance
“Barack Obama strikes at the heart of our deepest insecurities. He is a good father while many of us aren’t. He wears suits to his job while we wear overalls, if we’re lucky enough to have a job at all. His wife tells us that we shouldn’t be feeding our children certain foods, and we hate her for it—not because we think she’s wrong but because we know she’s right. Many”
J.D. Vance, Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis

Carrie Brownstein
“My favorite kind of musical experience is to feel afterward that your heart is filled up and transformed, like it is pumping a whole new kind of blood into your veins. This is what it is to be a fan: curious, open, desiring for connection, to feel like art has chosen you, claimed you as its witness.”
Carrie Brownstein, Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl: A Memoir

N.K. Jemisin
“I don’t have to believe in something for it to fuck up my life.”
N.K. Jemisin, The City We Became

Joe R. Lansdale
“Run everything on a generator,” Haskel said. “Got to keep it a certain temperature for the stuff I carry. Not too cold. Not too hot. There’s shit in here, weather got wrong, it’d go off and blow our asses all the way to Mineola. Maybe out in the goddamned Gulf.”

“I don’t like to travel that far unless I got plane tickets and a steward in my lap,” Leonard said.

Haskel cut an eye toward Leonard. “You mean stewardess, don’t you?”

“I don’t think so,” Leonard said, and let Haskel churn that one over.”
Joe R. Lansdale
