The best book I have read so far this year by far. Poignant and real. I actually had to put it down at one point because I started to sob.

Arun D. Ellis
“Only a psychopath would ever think of doing these things, only a psychopath would dream of abusing other people in such a way, only a psychopath would treat people as less than human just for money. The shocking truth is, even though they now have most if not all of the money, they want still more, they want all of the money that you have left in your pockets, they want it all because they have no empathy with other people, with other creatures, they have no feeling for the world which they exploit, they have no love or sense of being or belonging for their souls are dead, dead to all things but greed and a desire to rule over others.”
Arun D. Ellis, Corpalism

“The implication of this particular tale is: Trust strangers. Believe in magic.”

“But magic is sometimes all about knowing where the secret door is, and how to open it. With that, you’re gone”
Michael Cunningham, A Wild Swan: And Other Tales

Sarah Waters
“Her friend - and her partner on the stage. You will not believe me, but making love to Kitty - a thing done in passion, but always, too, in shadow and silence, and with an ear half-cocked for the sound of footsteps on the stairs - making love to Kitty and posing at her side in a shaft of limelight, before a thousand pairs of eyes, to a script I knew by heart, in an attitude I had laboured for hours to perfect - these things were not so very different. A double act is always twice the act that the audience thinks it; beyond our songs, our steps, our bits of business with coins and canes and flowers, there was a private language, in which we held an endless, delicate exchange of which the crowd knew nothing. This was a language not of the tongue but of the body, its vocabulary the pressure of a finger or a palm, the nudging of a hip, the holding or breaking of a gaze, that said, You are too slow - you got too fast - not there but here - that's good - that's better! It was as if we walked before the crimson curtain, lay down upon the boards and kissed and fondled - and were clapped, and cheered, and paid for it!”
Sarah Waters, Tipping the Velvet

“There is a sense in which we are all each other’s consequences.”

Existentialist fiction is rarely referred to as reality. And sometimes reality is misgiven. And then we seek for meaning, if not for purpose in words ...more
