Book cover for Stylish Academic Writing
Higher education researchers topped the table in their enthusiasm for nominalizations, those multisyllabic abstract nouns formed from verbs or adjectives—obfuscation, viscosity, fortuitousness—so beloved by academic writers.
Anthony Powell
“I get a warm feeling among my books.”
Anthony Powell

Yves Saint-Laurent
“We must never confuse elegance with snobbery”
Yves Saint Laurent

Donald Barthelme
“The aim of literature ... is the creation of a strange object covered with fur which breaks your heart.”
Donald Barthelme, Come Back, Dr. Caligari

Doris Lessing
“What's terrible is to pretend that second-rate is first-rate. To pretend that you don't need love when you do; or you like your work when you know quite well you're capable of better.”
Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook

Maria Semple
“My heart started racing, not the bad kind of heart racing, like I'm going to die. But the good kind of heart racing, like, Hello, can I help you with something? If not, please step aside because I'm about to kick the shit out of life.”
Maria Semple, Where'd You Go, Bernadette
