The Bone People by Keri Hulme
"I have read this book 11 times. It's not because of my faulty memory (although I do have one), it is because this is my favorite fiction book of all time. The shape is unusual for a novel - it is not told in one voice or from one point of view. At..." Read more of this review »

Ta-Nehisi Coates
“To Trump whiteness is neither notional nor symbolic but is the very core of his power. In this, Trump is not singular. But whereas his forebears carried whiteness like an ancestral talisman, Trump cracked the glowing amulet open, releasing its eldritch energies.”
Ta-Nehisi Coates, We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy

Eckhart Tolle
“I have lived with several Zen masters -- all of them cats.”
Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

Orhan Pamuk
“After all, a woman who doesn't love cats is never going to be make a man happy.”
Orhan Pamuk, The Museum of Innocence

Wil Wheaton
“Things every person should have:

•A nemesis.
•An evil twin.
•A secret headquarters.
•An escape hatch.
•A partner in crime.
•A secret identity.”
Wil Wheaton

W. Kamau Bell
“When art sets racism in the past, no matter how good it is, it allows white people in the audience (and others) to say to themselves "Wow! That racism sure was bad way back then!" It's what happens when people go see 12 Years a Slave. My response is always, "Yeah, you wanna know another time when racism was bad? Earlier today.”
