Book cover for Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things
Which sort of shows why my body is an idiot, because forced narcolepsy is pretty much the worst defense ever. It’s like a human version of playing possum, which is only helpful if bears are trying to eat you, because apparently if you lie ...more

Alice asked a question about A Father’s Betrayal:
A Father’s Betrayal by Gabriella Gillespie
How are the children; did they grow up to be strong, compassionate adults who are far more mature than their years? And does Anwar ever make it to the UK? That's mostly what I want to know.

Colleen McCullough
“Each of us has something within us which won't be denied, even if it makes us scream aloud to die. We are what we are, that's all. Like the old Celtic legend of the bird with the thorn in its breast, singing its heart out and dying. Because it has to, its self-knowledge can't affect or change the outcome, can it? Everyone singing his own little song, convinced it's the most wonderful song the world has ever heard. Don't you see? We create our own thorns, and never stop to count the cost. All we can do is suffer the pain, and tell ourselves it was well worth it.”
Colleen McCullough, The Thorn Birds
