"I have a sort of Christmas-morning sense of the library as a big box full of beautiful books." ~ Audrey Niffenegger
"I look at him, look at the book, remember, this book, this moment, the first book I ever loved" ~ Audrey Niffenegger
"I had seen myself, a portrait of myself as a reader. My childhood: hours spent in airless classrooms, days home sick from school reading Nancy Drew, forbidden books read secretively late at night. Teenage years reading - trying to read- books I'd heard were important, Naked Lunch and The Fountainhead, Ulysses and Women in Love." -The Night Bookmobile" ~ Audrey Niffenegger
"I make books because I love them as objects; because I want to put the pictures and the words together, because I want to tell a story." ~ Audrey Niffenegger
"It's funny how we like labels. If I ever have a bookstore, I'm not going to put any labels on the sections." ~ Audrey Niffenegger
"My apartment is basically a couch, an armchair, and about four thousand books." ~ Audrey Niffenegger
"Franz Schulze's book "Fantastic Images" had a lot of impact on me. Mark Pascale turned me on to that book when I was twenty years old. It was really interesting to see all this art in one place and to have somebody articulate a theory of Chicago art since I already had a real predilection towards Dada and Surrealism. Chicago is just teeming with kooky, whacked-out artists, and I'm one of them in my own sedate way." ~ Audrey Niffenegger
"When I began writing The Night Bookmobile, it was a story about a woman's secret life as a reader. As I worked it also became a story about the claims that books place on their readers, the imbalance between our inner and outer lives, a cautionary tale of the seductions of the written word. It became a vision of the afterlife as a library, of heaven as a funky old camper filled with everything you've ever read. What is this heaven? What is it we desire from the hours, weeks, lifetimes we devote to books? What would you sacrifice to sit in that comfy chair with perfect light for an afternoon in eternity, reading the perfect book, forever?" ~ Audrey Niffenegger
"Dreams are important to me because they are so irrational. I'm attracted to things which seem to fit together but don't in fact make any sense. Dreams didn't really have a lot to do with the novel whereas "The Adventuress," which was my first visual book, is almost entirely based on dreams. I had ten more or less random drawings and then I thought well, I'll make a plot that connects all of them. "The Three Incestuous Sisters" was kind of the same. The three characters appeared in a dream and I knew who they were." ~ Audrey Niffenegger

Today's Quote

Her elongated eyes did not close as other women's eyes did, but like the eyes of tigers, pumas and leopards, the two lids meeting lazily and slowly; and they seemed slightly sewn together towards the nose, making them narrow, with a lascivious, oblique glance falling from them like the glance of a woman who does not want to see what is being done to her body. All this gave her an air of being made love to, which aroused the Baron as soon as he met her."
