Book cover for Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men
‘humanity is male and man defines woman not in herself, but as relative to him; she is not regarded as an autonomous being. […] He is the Subject, he is the Absolute – she is the Other.’1
Jojo Moyes
“You don't have to let that one thing be the thing that defines you.”
Jojo Moyes, After You

Celeste Ng
“All her life, she had learned that passion, like fire, was a dangerous thing. It so easily went out of control. It scaled walls and jumped over trenches. Sparks leapt like fleas and spread as rapidly; a breeze could carry embers for miles. Better to control that spark and pass it carefully from one generation to the next, like an Olympic torch. Or, perhaps, to tend it carefully like an eternal flame: a reminder of light and goodness that would never - could never - set anything ablaze. Carefully controlled. Domesticated. Happy in captivity. The key, she thought, was to avoid conflagration.”
Celeste Ng, Little Fires Everywhere

Celeste Ng
“It was like training yourself to live on the smell of an apple alone, when what you really wanted was to devour it, to sink your teeth into it and consume it, seeds, core, and all.”
Celeste Ng, Little Fires Everywhere

Kristin Hannah
“Books are the mile markers of my life. Some people have family photos or home movies to record their past. I’ve got books. Characters. For as long as I can remember, books have been my safe place.”
Kristin Hannah, The Great Alone

Gail Honeyman
“Although it’s good to try new things and to keep an open mind, it’s also extremely important to stay true to who you really are.”
Gail Honeyman, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine
