Book cover for The Moviegoer
However, these are miserable curs and to make matters worse, they also dislike me. One I especially despise, an orange-colored brute with a spitz face and a plume of a tail which curves over his back exposing a large convoluted anus. I have ...more
Anthony Marra
“There’s no working radio tower in the country. It’s all static,” she said, without looking to him. “I know. But 102.3 plays the best. Not too tinny. Full and robust. If a cello were to perform static, it would sound like this.” She shook her head and turned the dial. “I prefer 93.9,” she said. She still hadn’t looked at him. “It’s too thin and monotone. There’s no variation. It just sounds like static.” “And that’s why I like it,” she said. “It sounds like static is supposed to sound.”
Anthony Marra, A Constellation of Vital Phenomena

Michel Faber
“Peter...” She let her head fall back against the seat and sighed. “Let’s not go there.”
“That’s what people always say about places where they already are.”
Michel Faber, The Book of Strange New Things

Barbara Kingsolver
“There’s this thing that happens, let’s say at school where a bunch of guys are in the bathroom, at the urinal, laughing about some dork that made an anus of himself in gym. You’re all basically nice guys, right? You know right from wrong, and would not in a million years be brutal to the poor guy’s face. And then it happens: the dork was in the shitter. He comes out of the stall with this look. He heard everything. And you realize you’re not really that nice of a guy. This is what I would say if I could, to all smart people of the world with their dumb hillbilly jokes: We are right here in the stall. We can actually hear you.”
Barbara Kingsolver, Demon Copperhead

David Mitchell
“Five years later, I take a deep, shuddery breath to stop myself crying. It’s not just that I can’t hold Aoife again, it’s everything: It’s grief for the regions we deadlanded, the ice caps we melted, the Gulf Stream we redirected, the rivers we drained, the coasts we flooded, the lakes we choked with crap, the seas we killed, the species we drove to extinction, the pollinators we wiped out, the oil we squandered, the drugs we rendered impotent, the comforting liars we voted into office—all so we didn’t have to change our cozy lifestyles.”
David Mitchell, The Bone Clocks

James   McBride
“Whatever he believed, he believed. It didn’t matter to him whether it was really true or not. He just changed the truth till it fit him. He was a real white man.”
James McBride, The Good Lord Bird
