[I See Manuscripts And Books That Are Spoiled For The Literary Reader Because They Are One Long Stream Of Top-of-the-head Writing, A Writer Telling A Story Without Concern For Precision Or Freshness In The Use Of Language. Some Of This Storytelling Reads As If It Were Spoken Rather Than Written, Stuffed With Tired Images That Pop Into The Writer's Head Because They Are So Familiar. The Top Of The Head Is Fit For Growing Hair, But Not For Generating Fine Prose.]

John Granger Quotes

"Second, the reason to embrace and celebrate these novels as the countercultural event that they are is due largely to the subliminal messages delivered by Harry and friends in their stolen wheelbarrows. Readers walk away, maybe a little softer on the occult than they were, but with story-embedded messages: the importance of a pure soul; loves power even over death; about sacrifice and loyalty; a host of images and shadows about Christ and how essential right belief is for personal transformation and victory over internal and external evils."

Quotes About Bad Conversation

"His cell-phone rang. Dominic fumbled for it on the nightstand next to the couch, the dim lights not helping his endeavour. He had piercing, generic, banal fluorescent lights on his face all the time at work and at University, it was so bad it made him loathe even natural sunlight. Lucky this apartments living room light had a dimmer. He flipped open his phone and said hello. ‘Hey Dom, how you doin? a voice boomed. It was Ben. They proceeded to talk about the upcoming exams, which were deceptively close as it was week 10 at the moment. Yes, they would be alright. Yes, they would meet up afterwards. No, he hadnt studied more than Ben had. As he clapped the phone closed after the genial conversation reached its natural nadir, he had forgotten most of what had been said" - Author: T.P. Grish

Quotes About Dog Death

"Heisenberg and Bohr and Einstein strike me as being like gifted retriever dogs. Off they go, not just for an afternoon, but for ten years; they come back exhausted and triumphant and drop at your feet... a vole. Its a remarkable thing in its way, a vole—intricate, beautiful really, marvellous. But does it... Does it help? Does it move the matter on?When you ask a question that youd actually like to know the answer to—what was there before the Big Bang, for instance, or what lies beyond the expanding universe, why does life have this inbuilt absurdity, this non sequitur of death—they say that your question cant be answered, because the terms in which youve put it are logically unsound. What you must do, you see, is ask vole questions. Vole is—as we have agreed—the answer; so it follows that your questions must therefore all be vole-related." - Author: Sebastian Faulks
