Pat Barker
“As later Priam comes secretly to the enemy camp to plead with Achilles for the return of his son Hector's body, he says: "'I do what no man before me has ever done, I kiss the hands of the man who killed my son."
Those words echoed round me, as I stood in the storage hut, surrounded on all sides by the wealth Achilles had plundered from burning cities. I thought: "And I do what countless women before me have been forced to do. I spread my legs for the man who killed my husband and my brothers.”
Pat Barker, The Silence of the Girls

Ava Dellaira
“The funny thing about beauty, James writes, is that in no way does its presence negate the truth of suffering, of injustice, of pain, but it does stand stalwart in its own right, as its own truth.”
Ava Dellaira, In Search Of Us

Taylor Jenkins Reid
“People think that intimacy is about sex. But intimacy is about truth. When you realize you can tell someone your truth, when you can show yourself to them, when you stand in front of them bare and their response is 'you're safe with me'- that's intimacy.”
Taylor Jenkins Reid, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

Julie Berry
“If music stops, and art ceases, and beauty fades, what have we then?”
Julie Berry, Lovely War

Julie Berry
“Kisses by the billions happen every day, even in a lonely world like ours.
But this is a kiss for the ages.”
Julie Berry, Lovely War
