Book cover for The Position
The sounds of parents traveled through walls, traveled up stairs, were inescapable. Wherever you went on earth, you could hear them.
“The first duty of the novelist is to entertain. It is a moral duty. People who read your books are sick, sad, traveling, in the hospital waiting room while someone is dying. Books are written by the alone for the alone.”
Donna Tartt

Anne Frank
“I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn.”
Anne Frank

Stephen King
“If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”
Stephen King

Chuck Palahniuk
“You can only hold a smile for so long, after that it's just teeth.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters

Thomas Mann
“In books we never find anything but ourselves. Strangely enough, that always gives us great pleasure, and we say the author is a genius.”
Thomas Mann
