Rochelle and 2 other people liked Anmiryam's review of Offshore:
Offshore by Penelope Fitzgerald
"I told myself that this was the year that I would read all of the Booker Prize winners -- including those I've read at times in that past. Well, here we are at the end of the first quarter and I've read exactly two of the 44 prize winning books. I..." Read more of this review »
Rochelle and 26 other people liked Ali's review of Offshore:
Offshore by Penelope Fitzgerald
"
As some of you may know, a few years ago I set myself the challenge of reading all the books that had ever won the booker prize. I had at that point already read several of them, and so it seemed a fairly achievable list – although I admit there a..." Read more of this review »

I saw this decades ago at Arena Stage in Washington, DC, but all I remembered before reading the play last night was the spare staging. Be sure to read Miller's introduction about how he changed the play into its second incarnation--the version I rea ...more

Jarod Kintz
“Like Alexander the Great and Caesar, I’m out to conquer the world. But first I have to stop at Walmart and pick up some supplies.”
Jarod Kintz, The Titanic would never have sunk if it were made out of a sink.

Brennan Manning
“A man doesn't grow old because he has lived a certain number of years. A man grows old when he deserts his ideal. The years may wrinkle his skin, but deserting his ideal wrinkles his soul.”
Brennan Manning, The Ragamuffin Gospel: Good News for the Bedraggled, Beat-Up, and Burnt Out

Derek Landy
“The fact is that we have no way of knowing if the person who we think we are is at the core of our being. Are you a decent girl with the potential to someday become an evil monster, or are you an evil monster that thinks it's a decent girl?"

"Wouldn't I know which one I was?"

"Good God, no. The lies we tell other people are nothing to the lies we tell ourselves.”
Derek Landy, Death Bringer

Yann Martel
“Was it the forgetfulness of old age or personal incapacity that made the man able to say please but not thank you?”
Yann Martel, Beatrice and Virgil

Glenn Greenwald
“The way things are supposed to work is that we're supposed to know virtually everything about what they [the government] do: that's why they're called public servants. They're supposed to know virtually nothing about what we do: that's why we're called private individuals.”
Glenn Greenwald
