Give Me Your Hand by Megan Abbott
"“The raw, ugly, mottled things you fear about yourself in your most private moments – what happens when someone says them aloud to you? The feeling like your skin slipped from your body, showing everything, red and veined.”

As teens, Kit and Diane..." Read more of this review »

Steven Pinker
“The better you know something, the less you remember about how hard it was to learn. The curse of knowledge is the single best explanation I know of why good people write bad prose.”
Steven Pinker, The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person's Guide to Writing in the 21st Century

Tom Rachman
“Books," he said, "are like mushrooms. They grow when you are not looking. Books increase by rule of compound interest: one interest leads to another interest, and this compounds into third. Next, you have so much interest there is no space in closet.”
Tom Rachman, The Rise & Fall of Great Powers

Rachel Naomi Remen
“In avoiding all pain and seeking comfort at all cost, we may be left without intimacy or compassion; in rejecting change and risk we often cheat ourselves of the quest; in denying our suffering we may never know our strength or our greatness.”
Rachel Naomi Remen, Kitchen Table Wisdom: Stories That Heal

Timothy Snyder
“The ideal capitalism envisioned by advocates of the free market depends upon social virtues and wise policies that it does not itself generate.”
Timothy Snyder, Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning

Steven Pinker
“As people age, they confuse changes in themselves with changes in the world, and changes in the world with moral decline—the illusion of the good old days.”
Steven Pinker, The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person's Guide to Writing in the 21st Century
