Sweet and sad, this novel is a great example of how good, realistic dialogue can reveal character. It's also a study in how people, even people who love each other, misunderstand each other, and sometimes in ways that can be fatal to a relationship. ...more

The Problem with Everything by Meghan Daum
"This book, much like "Coddling of the American Mind" or Katie Herzog's twitter feed (where I first heard of the book) is the sort of thing that I need to read under the cover, when no one is looking. Reading it is a bit like watching pornography,..." Read more of this review »

This is the second book of essays by Meghan Daum that I've read, and I liked it even more than The Unspeakable. Its subject is the post-Trump strain of feminism to which American women these days are expected to subscribe and which since late 2016 ...more

Yehuda HaLevi
“Tis a Fearful Thing

‘Tis a fearful thing
to love what death can touch.

A fearful thing
to love, to hope, to dream, to be –

to be,
And oh, to lose.

A thing for fools, this,

And a holy thing,

a holy thing
to love.

For your life has lived in me,
your laugh once lifted me,
your word was gift to me.

To remember this brings painful joy.

‘Tis a human thing, love,
a holy thing, to love
what death has touched.”
Judah Halevi

Princes & Kings

Isn't it strange how princes and kings,
and clowns that caper in sawdust rings,
and common people, like you and me,
are builders for eternity?

Each is given a list of rules;
a shapeless mass; a bag of tools.
And each must fashion, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block, or a Stepping-Stone.”
R. Lee Sharpe

Colson Whitehead
“It was easy to root for the winners. No, he liked the punch-drunk ones, half walking at mile twenty-three, tongues flapping like Labradors. Tumbling across the finish line by hook or by crook, feet pounded to bloody meat in their Nikes. The laggards and limpers who weren’t running the course but running deep into their character—down into the cave to return to the light with what they found. By the time they got to Columbus Circle, the TV crews have split, the cone cups of water and Gatorade litter the course like daisies in a pasture, and the silver space blankets twist in the wind. Maybe they had someone waiting for them and maybe they didn’t. Who wouldn’t celebrate that?”
Colson Whitehead, The Nickel Boys

Ada Calhoun
“By staying married, we give something to ourselves and to others: hope. Hope that in steadfastly loving someone, we ourselves, for all our faults, will be loved; that the broken world will be made whole. To hitch your rickety wagon to the flickering star of another fallible human being -- what an insane thing to do. What a burden, and what a gift.”
Ada Calhoun, Wedding Toasts I'll Never Give
