Quote of the Day

“A truly excellent writer, though, pursues her obsessions and allows them to dictate what form her work will take.  That sounds simple, but in fact it is hard for any writer to recognize what those obsessions are, to face them squarely when they are frightening or puzzling, and to shape them into persuasive works of art.”

J. Robert Lennon, reviewing Jamie Quatro’s I Want To Show You More, The New York Times Book Review

    What a fabulous quote and I can’t wait to read her stories! Surrendering to obsession does seem so simple but, the reality often gets in the way . . . let alone shaping it into persuasive art!
