I really enjoyed this novella prequel to The Good Daughter, but I have a few complaints. Let me just say, Slaughter's writing is sharp and I loved the story line, but I would have preferred a story from the perspective of Gamma, Charlie's mother, who ...more

Anaïs Nin
“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.”
Anaïs Nin

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Frank Zappa
“So many books, so little time.”
Frank Zappa

Stephen King
“If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”
