Jenny Offill
“My husband gets a new job.... The pay is better. It has benefits. How is it, people ask. "Not bad," he says with a shrug. "Only vaguely soul-crushing.”
Jenny Offill, Dept. of Speculation

Alice McDermott
“My love for the child asleep in the crib, the child's need for me, for my vigilance, had made my life valuable in a way that even the most abundantly offered love, my parents', my brother's, even Tom's, had failed to do. Love was required of me now--to be given, not merely to be sought and returned.”
Alice McDermott, Someone

Alan Bradley
“I felt a pang -- a strange and inexplicable pang that I had never felt before.
It was homesickness.
Now, even more than I had earlier when I'd first glimpsed it, I longed to be transported into that quiet little landscape, to walk up the path, to take a key from my pocket and open the cottage door, to sit down by the fireplace, to wrap my arms around myself, and to stay there forever and ever.”
Alan Bradley, The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag

Louise Penny
“I was tired of seeing the Graces always depicted as beautiful young things. I think wisdom comes with age and life and pain. And knowing what matters.”
Louise Penny, A Fatal Grace

Alan Bradley
“Anyone who knew the word slattern was worth cultivating as a friend.”
Alan Bradley, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie
