You Should Have Left by Daniel Kehlmann

Spaces outside of and inside of spaces. Old spaces overlaid onto new spaces overlaid onto old spaces. Spaces to trap you. What's larger on the inside than it is on the outside? An ancient tower, a mansion of ill repute... an evil Tardis!

C.S. Lewis
“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”
C.S. Lewis

Alfred Hitchcock
“There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.”
Alfred Hitchcock

Joyce Carol Oates
“I never change, I simply become more myself.”
Joyce Carol Oates, Solstice

Angela Carter
“Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.”
Angela Carter

Don DeLillo
“I've got death inside me. It's just a question of whether or not I can outlive it.”
Don DeLillo, White Noise
