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

  • 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.

  • Questions and topics for discussion for Fin & Lady, an enchanting novel of a brother and sister who must form their own unconventional family in increasingly unconventional times.

  • You could say that Armand de Potter did become a spy of sorts, on a self-appointed mission to gather antiquities instead of secrets, with his travel bureau providing an excuse to visit places that were out of reach for other collectors…

  • “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.”
