Nothing to Envy by Barbara Demick
"This book was simultaneously a page-turner and hard as hell to read. I had trouble falling asleep last night because of it, and when I did I had some unsettling nightmares. This isn't a book I can read, write an "oh that's nice, that definitely ad..." Read more of this review »

This book was all over the place. Selling fish with potential health effects (escolar) or mislabeling potential allergens and selling mislabeled Kobe beef at a huge markup are treated with basically the same level of seriousness, which was pretty ton ...more

Ursula K. Le Guin
“He never spoke with any bitterness at all, no matter how awful the things he said. Are there really people without resentment, without hate, she wondered. People who never go cross-grained to the universe? Who recognize evil, and resist evil, and yet are utterly unaffected by it? Of course there are. Countless, the living and the dead. Those who have returned in pure compassion to the wheel, those who follow the way that cannot be followed without knowing they follow it, the sharecropper's wife in Alabama and the lama in Tibet and the entomologist in Peru and the millworker in Odessa and the greengrocer in London and the goatherd in Nigeria and the old, old man sharpening a stick by a dry streambed somewhere in Australia, and all the others. There is not one of us who has not known them. There are enough of them, enough to keep us going. Perhaps.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Lathe of Heaven

Tara Westover
“The thing about having a mental breakdown is that no matter how obvious it is that you're having one, it is somehow not obvious to you. I'm fine, you think. So what if I watched TV for twenty-four straight hours yesterday. I'm not falling apart. I'm just lazy. Why it's better to think yourself lazy than think yourself in distress, I'm not sure. But it was better. More than better: it was vital.”
Tara Westover, Educated: A Memoir

“Is it possible that even happy moments of pleasure never stand up to a rigorous examination? Possible.”
Elena Ferrante, The Story of a New Name

Ursula K. Le Guin
“The end justifies the means. But what if there never is an end? All we have is means.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Lathe of Heaven

Ursula K. Le Guin
“Things don't have purposes, as if the universe were a machine, where every part has a useful function. What's the function of a galaxy? I don't know if our life has a purpose and I don't see that it matters. What does matter is that we're a part. Like a thread in a cloth or a grass-blade in a field. It is and we are. What we do is like wind blowing on the grass.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Lathe of Heaven
