I enjoy Ann Tyler. Her books, to me, are comfort-reads. They go down easy and end happy. This one, to me, didn’t stand out particularly, but on the whole I admire her as a writer—and she’s very prolific.

The Human Comedy by William Saroyan

A beautifully written and sweet little gem of a book about good everyday people facing the realities of the hardships of life, especially for those carrying on at home (California) during WWII. A poetic read.

Barbara Kingsolver
“We are our injuries, as much as we are our successes.”
Barbara Kingsolver, The Poisonwood Bible

John Steinbeck
“Literature is as old as speech. It grew out of human need for it and it has not changed except to become more needed. The skalds, the bards, the writers are not separate and exclusive. From the beginning, their functions, their duties, and their responsibilities have been decreed by our species... the writer is delegated to declare and to celebrate man's proven capacity for greatness of heart and spirit - for gallantry in defeat, for courage, compassion and love. In the endless war against weakness and despair, these are the bright rally flags of hope and of emulation. I hold that a writer who does not passionately believe in the perfectibility of man has no dedication nor any membership in literature.”
John Steinbeck

Nancy E. Turner
“The best cure for sadness is doing something.”
Nancy E. Turner, Sarah's Quilt

Kathryn Stockett
“[Crisco] ain't just for frying. You ever get a sticky something stuck in your hair,like gum?...That's right, Crisco. Spread this on a baby's bottom, you won't even know what diaper rash is...shoot, I seen ladies rub it under they eyes and on they husband's scaly feet...Clean the goo from a price tag, take the squeak out a door hinge. Lights get cut off, stick a wick in it and burn it like a candle....And after all that, it'll still fry your chicken.”
Kathryn Stockett, The Help

“As of this writing, I am twenty-five years old. I have been alive for 307 months. Nine of those months were pretty terrible. But 298 of those months have been very good. I have been happy. I have been very blessed. Who knows how many more months I have to live? But even if I died tomorrow, none out of 307 seems like pretty good odds.”
Elizabeth Smart with Chris Stewart
