Book cover for My Kind of Place: Travel Stories from a Woman Who's Been Everywhere
At a time when the world feels chaotic and frightening, writers who go out to see it and describe it seem more important, not less. Even fluffy, expository stories about pretty places matter if people are less inclined to travel, since then ...more

Nick Hornby
“Maybe we all live life at too high a pitch, those of us who absorb emotional things all day, and as mere consequence we can never feel merely content: we have to be unhappy, or ecstatically, head-over-heels happy, and those states are difficult to achieve within a stable, solid relationship.”
Nick Hornby, High Fidelity

Nick Hornby
“Sentimental music has this great way of taking you back somewhere at the same time that it takes you forward, so you feel nostagic and hopeful all at the same time.”
Nick Hornby, High Fidelity

Toni Morrison
“There is a loneliness that can be rocked. Arms crossed, knees drawn up, holding, holding on, this motion, unlike a ship's, smooths and contains the rocker. It's an inside kind--wrapped tight like skin. Then there is the loneliness that roams. No rocking can hold it down. It is alive. On its own. A dry and spreading thing that makes the sound of one's own feet going seem to come from a far-off place.”
Toni Morrison, Beloved

Joseph Brodsky
“For darkness restores what light cannot repair.”
Joseph Brodsky

Louise Erdrich
“We do know that no one gets wise enough to really understand the heart of another, though it is the task of our life to try.”
Louise Erdrich, The Bingo Palace
