Tomasz Jedrowski
“This is how I lived back then– through books. I locked myself into their stories, dreamt of their characters at night, pretended to be them. They were my armour against the hard edges of reality. I carried them with me wherever I went, like a talisman in my pocket, thinking of them as almost more real than the people around me, who spoke and lived in denial, destined, I thought, to never do anything worth recounting.”
Tomasz Jedrowski, Swimming in the Dark

Ernest Hemingway
“You are so brave and quiet I forget you are suffering.”
Ernest Hemingway

Garrison Keillor
“My own life would make a pretty dull story, I think, and I envy him as I drive to work on a cold Minnesota morning across the Mississippi River with its coal barges still struggling upstream like so many of us nowadays.”
Garrison Keillor

Orhan Pamuk
“Happiness is holding someone in your arms and knowing you hold the whole world.”
Orhan Pamuk, Snow

John Fowles
“Just those three words, said and meant. I love you.

They were quite hopeless. He said it as he might have said, I have cancer.

His fairy story.”
John Fowles, The Collector
