Author: Jasper Fforde

He filed her claws and fed her tiny, smelly fishes. They shot her the day his new father, Digger, came to pick him up."Burying that bear," I overheard Digger tell Mr. Oamaru once. "The first thing we ever did together as father and son."Rangi's given us this global silent treatment ever since, a silence he extends to people, animals, ice."

Thing is, no matter what the river does, both parties gotta paddle equally, see?"

Author: Pat Conroy
21. "Khaemwaset's eyes remained on the riverbank as the green confusion of spring glided by. Beyond the fecund, brilliant life of the bank with its choked river growth, its darting, piping birds, its busy insects and occasionally its sleepy grinning crocodiles, was a wealth of rich black soil in which the fellahin were struggling, knee-deep, to strew the fresh seed."
