Jeffrey Eugenides
“Tessie allowed Milton to press his clarinet to her skin and fill her body with music. At first it only tickled her. But after a while the notes spread deeper into her body. She felt the vibrations penetrate her muscles, pulsing in waves, until they rattled her bones and made her inner organs hum.”
Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex
tags: body, music

Jeffrey Eugenides
“Up until recently, Milton thought of Tessie as his prim cousin. Whenever one of his friends expressed interest in her, Milton told them to give up the idea. "That's honey from the icebox," he said, As Artie Shaw might have. "Cold sweets don't spread.”
Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex

Joe Hill
“The hens are clucking. Harper thought it would be a toss-up, which term for women she hated more: bitch or hen. A hen was something you kept in a cage, and her sole worth was in her eggs. A bitch, at least, had teeth.”
Joe Hill

Glenn Haybittle
“Songs carry memories almost as reliably and poignantly as smells.”
Glenn Haybittle, The Tree House

Anthony Doerr
“Read a verse of Homer and you can walk the walls of Troy alongside Hector; fall into a paragraph by Fitzgerald and your Now entangles with Gatsby’s Now; open a 1953 book by Ray Bradbury and go hunting T. rexes. Ursula Le Guin said: “Story is our only boat for sailing on the river of time,” and she’s right, of course. The shelves of every library in the world brim with time machines. Step into one, and off you go.”
Anthony Doerr, author of “All the Light We Cannot See”
