Honestly, I'd give it 3 and a half stars if it were possible, but upped it to four because I adored this book when I was an angsty gothic teenager. My reread here at 40 was prompted by the recent release of a 3rd season of Twin Peaks, after a 25 year ...more

Haruki Murakami
“O.K., so I'm not so smart. I'm working class. But it's the working class that keeps the world running, and it's the working class that gets exploited. What the hell kind of revolution have you got just tossing out big words that working-class people can't understand? What the hell kind of social revolution is that? I mean, I'd like to make the world a better place, too. If somebody's really being exploited, we've got to put a stop to it. That's what I believe, and that's why I ask questions.”
Haruki Murakami

China Miéville
“His fidelity to the cliche transcended the necessity to communicate.”
China Miéville, The City & the City

George Eliot
“Any coward can fight a battle when he's sure of winning; but give me the man who has pluck to fight when he's sure of losing. That's my way, sir; and there are many victories worse than a defeat.”
George Eliot

Jean Baudrillard
“In order for ethnology to live, its object must die; by dying, the object takes its revenge for being 'discovered' and with its death defies the science that wants to grasp it.”
Jean Baudrillard

Gustave Flaubert
“Just when the gods had ceased to be, and the Christ had not yet come, there was a unique moment in history, between Cicero and Marcus Aurelius, when man stood alone.”
Gustave Flaubert, The Letters, 1830-1880
