Book cover for The Dawn of Everything: A New History of Humanity
One thing that will quickly become clear is that the prevalent ‘big picture’ of history – shared by modern-day followers of Hobbes and Rousseau alike – has almost nothing to do with the facts.
Jenny Offill
“If I had to sum up what he did to me, I’d say it was this: he made me sing along to all the bad songs on the radio. Both when he loved me and when he didn't.”
Jenny Offill, Dept. of Speculation

Yaa Gyasi
“My memories of him, though few, are mostly pleasant, but memories of people you hardly know are often permitted a kind of pleasantness in their absence. It's those who stay who are judged the harshest, simply by virtue of being around to be judged.”
Yaa Gyasi, Transcendent Kingdom

“...are libraries necessary? We keep having this debate because we have a very skewed idea of why libraries matter.”
John Palfrey, BiblioTech: Why Libraries Matter More Than Ever in the Age of Google

“Of course it is difficult. You are creating a creature with a soul, my friend says.”

“There had been so many MoFo ladies—the librarian, the lawyer, the gastromancer who conversed with dead people via tummy rumbles, the psychic we underestimated (she’d told Big Jim that the human population was about to be wiped out, which had really killed the vibe of mini golf), the bodybuilder, the one who wouldn’t let me steal her earrings, the pet oncologist, the one from Zimbabwe, the one with six children, the one with dead mice in her pockets (Detective Turd eked them out, and she had to come clean about being an Indian python mom). These strange species of MoFo blew in and out of our lives like empty Cheeto® bags.”
Kira Jane Buxton, Feral Creatures
