“You cannot be forever watching for the point, or you lose the simplest thing: being a major character in your own life.”
Renata Adler, Speedboat

Bill Buford
“They are the jammiest of the jammy ingredients.”
Bill Buford, Dirt: Adventures in Lyon as a Chef in Training, Father, and Sleuth Looking for the Secret of French Cooking

Russell Hoban
“People write books for children and other people write about the books written for children but I don’t think it’s for the children at all. I think that all the people who worry so much about the children are really worrying about themselves, about keeping their world together and getting the children to help them do it, getting the children to agree that it is indeed a world. Each new generation of children has to be told: ‘This is a world, this is what one does, one lives like this.’ Maybe our constant fear is that a generation of children will come along and say: ‘This is not a world, this is nothing, there’s no way to live at all.”
Russell Hoban, Turtle Diary
