Original thoughts on books and reading by the authors you know and love.

  • The stager had just spent a week rummaging in my attic and rearranging the pictures on my walls, and this seemed a rich setup: What if this woman had known me in some meaningful context, had known secrets about my family, or had held some sort of grudge? And what if I had been unaware that she was even in my house?

  • Summer’s End Giveaway: What better way to celebrate cooler days than by giving away dozens of books to our lucky winners?

  • It’s difficult to say when I first read it, because it’s hard to separate the real and the reconstituted memory. One image remains: the butchery at the skating rink, and the feeling that the book belonged to a tradition of novels about love in which the loved one is lost.

  • “You uncover a place in the scent of a dish, more absolutely than in a thousand words.”

    Jason Goodwin

  • “One day a tiger cub will crawl out of my Amazon box."

    Heather O'Neill

  • “Disable one-click before consuming alcohol. You know what I mean. Oh, yes, you do.”

    Louise Doughty

  • “All my personal writing goes back to Montaigne. ”

    Phyllis Rose

  • “Music came to me in a spotty, haphazard and completely disjointed way, and it wasn’t until I started writing a novel that begins in 1966, that I found I had suddenly tapped into one of the richest veins in American music.”
