Listen,” I told him. “Don’t be so tough so early in the morning. I’m sure you’ve cut plenty of people’s throats. I haven’t even had my coffee yet.”

We would be together and have our books and at night be warm in bed together with the windows open and the stars bright.

Best Author-on-Author Insults in History

Virginia Woolf on James Joyce: [Ulysses is] the work of a queasy undergraduate scratching his pimples.

Harold Bloom on J.K. Rowling: How to read ‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone’? Why, very quickly, to begin with, and perhaps also to make an end. Why read it? Presumably, if you cannot be persuaded to read anything better, Rowling will have to do.

H. G. Wells on George Bernard Shaw: An idiot child screaming in a hospital.

Ralph Waldo Emerson on Jane Austen: Miss Austen’s novels . . . seem to me vulgar in tone, sterile in artistic invention, imprisoned in the wretched conventions of English society, without genius, wit, or knowledge of the world.

William Faulkner on Ernest Hemingway: He has never been known to use a word that might send a reader to the dictionary.

Ernest Hemingway on William Faulkner: Poor Faulkner. Does he really think big emotions come from big words?

W. H. Auden on Robert Browning: I don’t think Robert Browning was very good in bed. His wife probably didn’t care for him very much. He snored and had fantasies about twelve-year-old girls.

Mark Twain on Jane Austen: Every time I read ‘Pride and Prejudice,’ I want to dig her up and hit her over the skull with her own shin-bone.

Literature Per the Urban Dictionary

Hemingway (v.): Writing a paper under the influence of alcohol, like noted author Ernest Hemingway. Ex: It’s due tomorrow. I totally have to hemingway that term paper tonight.

Foer: A hipster who has became vegan or vegetarian after reading Jonathan Safran Foer’s “Eating Animals.” Like Foer himself, he/she may or may not cheat by eating meat on occasion but will still be sure to inflict guilt on any meat-eaters encountered. Also: foerified (vegetarian-inspired). Ex: I watched “Food Inc.” and thought it was good, but I’m not turning into a foer anytime soon.

Langston Hughes: Small middle school in Northern Virginia. Crazy lunch ladies.

Proust: A rather impressive poke to the upper body.

How Novelistic

❝ All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you; the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. ❞

Świat łamie każdego i potem niektórzy są jeszcze mocniejsi w miejscach złamania. Ale takich, co nie chcą się złamać, świat zabija. Zabija w równej mierze najlepszych, najdelikatniejszych i najdzielniejszych. Jeżeli nie jesteś żadnym z nich, możesz być pewien, że zabije cię także, ale bez szczególnego pośpiechu.
