I'm ashamed to admit that this was my first James Baldwin book, but it won't my last. I had read and enjoyed several of his short stories, notably "Sonny's Blues," but had never read any of his novels. This was a great book to start my relationship w ...more
We, the Survivors by Tash Aw
"If you read FIVE STAR BILLIONAIRE—as I have, and loved it, as I did, the first thing you’ll notice in this new novel by Tash Aw is that these two books are quite different in scope and depth. FSB was what I would call literary mainstream. But WE,..." Read more of this review »

Anne McCaffrey
“You idiot! You misbegotten son of a jinn’s meeting with a jackass, may the grave of your maternal grandmother be defiled by the dung of ten thousand syphilitic she-camels!”
Anne McCaffrey, Acorna: The Unicorn Girl

Richard Flanagan
“To have been part of a Pharaonic slave system that had at its apex a divine sun king led him to understand unreality as the greatest force in life. And his life was now, he felt, one monumental unreality, in which everything that did not matter—professional ambitions, the private pursuit of status, the colour of wallpaper, the size of an office or the matter of a dedicated car parking space—was vested with the greatest significance, and everything that did matter—pleasure, joy, friendship, love—was deemed somehow peripheral. It made for dullness mostly and weirdness generally.”
Richard Flanagan, The Narrow Road to the Deep North

Albert Einstein
“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.”
Albert Einstein

Mahatma Gandhi
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“He did not believe in virtue. Virtue was vanity dressed up and waiting for applause.”
