Book cover for What Girls Are Good For: A Novel of Nellie Bly
An angry woman implies the failure of men. It means we have failed, and we do not care to think of our failures. Who does? It's deeply disturbing, even frightening.”
Davida Chazan

Ariel Lawhon
“The thing about lipstick, the reason it’s so powerful, is that it is distracting. Men don’t see the flashes of anger in your eyes or your clenched fists when you wear it. They see a woman, not a warrior, and that gives me the advantage.”
Ariel Lawhon, Code Name Hélène

Sue Grafton
“Life was reduced to its four basic elements: air, food, drink, and a good friend.”
Sue Grafton, P is for Peril

Margaret Atwood
“I guess that's how they were able to do it, in the way they did it, all at once, without anyone knowing beforehand. If there had still been portable money, it would have been more difficult.
It was after the catastrophe, when they shot the president and machine-gunned the Congress and the army declared a state of emergency. They blamed it on the Islamic fanatics at the time.
I was stunned. Everyone was, I know that. It was hard to believe, the entire government gone like that. How did they get in, how did it happen?
That was when they suspended the Constitution. They said it would be temporary. There wasn't even any rioting in the streets. People stayed home at night, watching television, looking for some direction. There wasn't even an enemy you could put your finger on.”
Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale

Harper Lee
“As sure as time, history is repeating itself, and as sure as man is man, history is the last place he’ll look for his lessons.”
Harper Lee, Go Set a Watchman

“The funeral is supposed to be a quiet affair, for the deceased had no friends. But words are water in Amsterdam, they flood your ears and set the rot, and the church’s east corner is crowded.”
Jessie Burton, The Miniaturist
