Hannah Kent
“To know what a person has done, and to know who a person is, are very different things.”
Hannah Kent, Burial Rites

Ed Lynskey
“Isabel and Alma Trumbo are the sisters who reside in the brick rambler on Church Street. They are a bit, uh, different and unorthodox. Borderline eccentric, some of the townies say, especially Alma.”
“What do the borderline eccentric sisters Isabel and Alma know about solving a murder case?”
Dwight gave it a moment’s reflection. “They could probably write a book about it.”
Ed Lynskey, Fowl Play

Ashley Audrain
“A mother’s heart breaks a million ways in her lifetime.”
Ashley Audrain, The Push

Anthony Marra
“Life: a constellation of vital phenomena—organization, irritability, movement, growth, reproduction, adaptation.”
Anthony Marra, A Constellation of Vital Phenomena

Nico Walker
“It's not that I'm dumb to the beauty of things. I take all the beautiful things to heart, and they fuck my heart till I about die from it.”
Nico Walker, Cherry
