"I have read everything by Wallace Stegner except the last story in this book. I haven't wanted to read it because I want there always to be something more from Stegner to read." Aug 01, 2020 12:44PM

“Just know that God only gives us what we can handle.”

I hate nothing more than this puerile phrase.
Sarah Winman
“I looked young then and my young was audacious. I lay back in those tiny dusty rooms and let the summer dusk unbutton me.”
Sarah Winman, Tin Man

Sunil Yapa
“There was something distinctly American about it all, a fundamental difference in perspective and place–in how they saw themselves in the world. And this was what made it so American–not that they felt compassion for mistreated workers three continents away, workers they had never seen or known, whose world they could not begin to understand, not that they felt guilty about their privilege, no,no not that either, but that they felt the need to do something. That they felt they had to power to do something about it. That was what made it so American. That they felt they had the power to do something–they assumed they had that power. They had been born with it–the ability to change the world–and had never questioned its existence, an assumption so massive as to remain unseen. The power and the responsibility to protect the people they imagined as powerless. The poor defenseless people of the Third World.

He felts a sudden queasy sadness. What if they knew what a real revolutionary was? How bloody a real revolution. He looked around, suddenly feeling the need to sit, and saw nothing but their faces, their round wet faces staring back at him.

What a violence of spirit not to know the world.”
Sunil Yapa

“there are between life partners sliding layers of history, tectonic plates of it shifting over the decades together.”
Helen Simpson, Cockfosters

Helen Simpson
“Sometimes when she woke from a flabbergasting dream Liz would lie very still to see if she could net it before it fled; perfectly still, eyes closed, not moving her head, as if the slightest shift would tip the story-bearing liquid, break its fragile meniscus and spill the night’s elusive catch.”
Helen Simpson, Cockfosters
