I Am No One You Know by Joyce Carol Oates
"Imagine someone serving you a scrumptious slice of chocolate cake. You then have 2 or 3 bites before it is taken away from you. Imagine that happening over and over again, maybe 19 times, to be exact. Well, that is what this book is like. Several..." Read more of this review »

“How often have I lain beneath rain on a strange roof, thinking of home.”
William C. Faulkner

Francesca Lia Block
“Wish on everything. Pink cars are good, especially old ones. And stars of course, first stars and shooting stars. Planes will do if they are the first light in the sky and look like stars. Wish in tunnels, holding your breath and lifting your feet off the ground. Birthday candles. Baby teeth.”
Francesca Lia Block

Sherman Alexie
“Is God a man or a woman?
God could be an armadillo. I have no idea.”
Sherman Alexie, Reservation Blues

Breece D'J Pancake
“I lean back, try to forget these fields and flanking hills. A long time before me or these tools, the Teays flowed here. I can almost feel the cold waters and the tickling the trilobites make when they crawl. All the water from the old mountains flowed west. But the land lifted. I have only the bottoms and stone animals I collect. I blink and breathe. My father is a khaki cloud in the canebrakes, and Ginny is no more to me than the bitter smell in the blackberry briers up on the ridge. --from Trilobites”

Margaret Atwood
“I would like to be the air that inhabits you for a moment only. I would like to be that unnoticed and that necessary.”
