Paul Theroux
“Normal, nice people don't become writers.”
Paul Theroux

Barbara  Davis
“In France we say, tu me manques. It means ‘you are missing from me.’ Not I miss you—the way Americans say it—but you are missing from me. The part of you that is a part of me . . . is gone. This is how it is for her. There’s a void in her life where you used to be, and she doesn’t know how to fill it.” Rory”
Barbara Davis, The Keeper of Happy Endings

Celeste Ng
“Dreaming of his future, he no longer heard all the things she did not say.”
Celeste Ng, Everything I Never Told You

Celeste Ng
“Hannah, as if she understood her place in the cosmos, grew from quiet infant to watchful child: a child fond of nooks and corners, who curled up in closets, behind sofas, under dangling tablecloths, staying out of sight as well as out of mind, to ensure the terrain of the family did not change.”
Celeste Ng, Everything I Never Told You

Kate Elizabeth Russell
“I can’t lose the thing I’ve held onto for so long, you know?” My face twists up from the pain of pushing it out. “I just really need it to be a love story, you know? I really, really need it to be that.”
“I know,” she says.
“Because if it isn’t a love story, then what is it”? I look to her glassy eyes, her face of wide open empathy. “It’s my life,” I say. “This has been my whole life.”
Kate Elizabeth Russell, My Dark Vanessa
