"I can understand how most normal people would have stopped reading this book a looooong time before halfway through. But it's agonizingly comforting and even cozy somehow. And the (two) actual LOLs so far were worth it! Okay, maybe not worth it. It depends on where this aggravating fucker goes with it." Jun 15, 2018 10:31PM

Judy Balan
“Comedy is hard work. People expect you to be funny 24/7. So if you're not constantly cracking up your friends, it can hurt you professionally. They may not read your book or come to your show. 'She's a comedian? She's not that funny!' It's unfair 'cause when cardio surgeon friends say they cut chests open and hold hearts in their hands, everyone just takes their word for it.”
Judy Balan

“All things pass, all things, that is, but mystery.”

Alasdair Gray
“Her book was filled with centaurs because she had not fully grasped the complexity of actual people, actual horses.”
Alasdair Gray, Every Short Story, 1951-2012

Colson Whitehead
“She recognizes the cramped handwriting, the internecine, slashing script. She has studied it under the gaze of the Institute Librarian, in locked rooms -- she even, in the early, giddy days of her conversion, practiced Fulton's handwriting for hours. Knows the ink. . . . Here it is now, on the familiar notebook paper Fulton preferred. She tracked down the manufacturer once; they have a plant across the river where they still turn out the Fontaine line.”
Colson Whitehead

“. . . . the materials for the nest must be collected and woven strand by strand. . . . Such a birdy method may at first seem absurd to the forward-thinking nest maker, but soon it will be found that the pleasures of the project are not derived from efficiency.”
P. Harding
