Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys
"Bertha Mason is the madwoman in the attic; she is the raving lunatic that is Rochester’s first wife in Jane Eyre,but have you ever stopped to wonder what her side of the story is? Have you ever considered that she may have a tale to tell?

Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys
"This was so good.
Jean Rhys' writing is enchanting and poetic; she sweeps you up into her dark and magic world. Her interpretation of Bertha's character from Jane Eyre is a wonderful creation. Since thinking about Jane Eyre (which is still one of m..." Read more of this review »

I had the privilege of editing Fiona Green's amazing Winning with Data. I can honestly say that I learned so much! It's a topic that could have been very dry, but Fiona's writing style is equal parts friendly and professional. She describes everythin ...more

You're on an Airplane by Parker Posey
"Oh, Parker Posey. How I loved you. This was so badly written, it seemed like she wrote random interesting sentences or paragraphs on napkins, flung them in the air, and had someone else type them into a book. There was ZERO order to the memoir - n..." Read more of this review »

I would have gotten more out of Titans of History if I had just been handed a typed page of all the names included in the book and then gone on to read the Wikipedia entry on each of them on my own. The short biographies are, of course, well written, ...more

Carl Sagan
“Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.

Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.”
Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space

Phyllis McGinley
“A bit of trash now and then is good for the severest reader. It provides the necessary roughage in the literary diet.”
Phyllis McGinley

Nick Hornby
“This is the second Simply Red song on this tape. One's unforgivable. Two's a war crime. Can I fast-forward?”
Nick Hornby, High Fidelity
