“Lily was a Fabian, a society suffragette who risked nothing for her beliefs.”
Kate Atkinson, Life After Life

“Fox Corner - that's what we should call the house. No one else has a house with that name and shouldn't that be the point?'
'Really?' Hugh said doubtfully. 'It's a little whimsical, isn't it? It sounds like a children's story. The House at Fox Corner.'
'A little whimsy never hurt anyone.'
'Strictly speaking, though,' Hugh said, 'can a house be a corner? Isn't it at one?'
So this is marriage, Sylvie thought.”
Kate Atkinson, Life After Life

“From the open French windows Sylvie watched Maurice erecting a makeshift tennis net, which mostly seemed to involve whacking everything in sight with a mallet. Small boys were a mystery to Sylvie. The satisfaction they gained from throwing sticks or stones for hours on end, the obsessive collection of inanimate objects, the brutal destruction of the fragile world around them, all seemed at odds with the men they were supposed to become.”
Kate Atkinson, Life After Life

“Pamela, even at a distance, was the voice of her conscience, but then it was very easy to have a conscience from a distance.”
Kate Atkinson, Life After Life
