Book cover for Lincoln in the Bardo
What I mean to say is, we had been considerable. Had been loved. Not lonely, not lost, not freakish, but wise, each in his or her own way. Our departures caused pain. Those who had loved us sat upon their beds, heads in hand; lowered their ...more

Abandoned. Frustrated by the lack of quotation marks, considering all of the dialogue. Also, just could not get into it.

Quick and sometimes fun, sometimes touching. These short stories masquerade as fluff but even the fluffiest of them have a deep, rough underside. Well done. Much enjoyed.

“Compassion is the purview of civilians, not those whose job it was to act. Action requires you to chose on thing over another. And it's better to help one side than neither.”
Chloe Benjamin, The Immortalists

“Most adults claim not to believe in magic, but Klara knows better. Why else would anyone play at permanence--fall in love, have children, buy a house--in the face of all evidence there's no such thing?”
Chloe Benjamin, The Immortalists

Lauren Groff
“Her husband’s family were not a lovely people, descendants of every kind of Floridian from original Timucua through Spanish and Scot and escaped slave and Seminole and carpetbagger; mostly they bore the look of overcooked Cracker.”
Lauren Groff, Fates and Furies

Timothy Snyder
“The president is a nationalist, which is not at all the same thing as a patriot. A nationalist encourages us to be our worst, and then tells us that we are the best. A nationalist, “although endlessly brooding on power, victory, defeat, revenge,” wrote Orwell, tends to be “uninterested in what happens in the real world.” Nationalism is relativist, since the only truth is the resentment we feel when we contemplate others. As the novelist Danilo Kiš put it, nationalism “has no universal values, aesthetic or ethical.” A patriot, by contrast, wants the nation to live up to its ideals, which means asking us to be our best selves. A patriot must be concerned with the real world, which is the only place where his country can be loved and sustained. A patriot has universal values, standards by which he judges his nation, always wishing it well—and wishing that it would do better. Democracy”
Timothy Snyder, On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century

Lauren Groff
“The wife is the dramaturge of the marriage, the one whose work is essential to what is produced, even if her contributions are never directly recognized. There is glory in this role. My wife, Mathilde, for instance, gave up her job years ago to make mine run more smoothly. She loves to cook and clean and edit my work, it makes her happy to do these things. And what piece of jerk chicken would condescend to say that she was lesser for not being the creator in the family?”
Lauren Groff, Fates and Furies
