Book cover for Virgil Wander
It was a beautiful storm, self-contained as storms often are, hunched far out over the vast water like a blob of blue ink, but it stalled in the middle distance and time just slipped away.
Anthony Doerr
“Her fingers walk the tightropes of sentences;”
Anthony Doerr, All the Light We Cannot See

Roxane Gay
“To have privilege in one or more areas does not mean you are wholly privileged. Surrendering to the acceptance of privilege is difficult, but it is really all that is expected. What I remind myself, regularly, is this: the acknowledgment of my privilege is not a denial of the ways I have been and am marginalized, the ways I have suffered.”
Roxane Gay, Bad Feminist: Essays

Susan Beth Pfeffer
“Maybe I'm wrong," Mom said. "Maybe the world really is coming to an end."
"Should I try Fox News?" I asked.
Mom shuddered. "We're not that desperate," she said.”
Susan Beth Pfeffer, Life As We Knew It

Lidia Yuknavitch
“Words from my whole body, my entire life, or the lives of women and girls whose stories got stuck in their throats came gushing out.”
Lidia Yuknavitch, The Chronology of Water

Guy de Maupassant
“Our memory is a more perfect world than the universe: it gives back life to those who no longer exist.”
Guy de Maupassant
