I think after all I found a feature which is incredible and kind of mein or let's say it something which is part of my childhood in the Jack Ketchum Novels and films. ~ Deyth Banger
Paretsky Novels quotes by Deyth Banger

A gun is a liar's weapon ~ Frank Miller
Paretsky Novels quotes by Frank Miller
I am glad it's [California novel] resonated with people because, for me, most apocalyptic novels aren't scary, because they feel so very far off. ~ Edan Lepucki
Paretsky Novels quotes by Edan Lepucki
My advice is to write about what you are interested in. If you read science fiction and fantasy, then write in that genre. If you read romance novels, then try writing one. ~ Michael Scott
Paretsky Novels quotes by Michael Scott
I think of myself as a serious professor who, during the weekend, writes novels. ~ Umberto Eco
Paretsky Novels quotes by Umberto Eco
We fear most what we don't understand. ~ J.e.mayer
Paretsky Novels quotes by J.e.mayer
I began plotting novels at about the time I learned to read . The story of my childhood is the usual bleak fantasy , and we can dismiss it with the restrained observation that I certainly would not consider living it again. ~ James A. Baldwin
Paretsky Novels quotes by James A. Baldwin
The stupidity of people comes from having an answer for everything. The wisdom of the novel comes from having a question for everything ... The novelist teaches the reader to comprehend the world as a question. There is wisdom and tolerance in that attitude. In a world built on sacrosanct certainties the novel is dead. The totalitarian world, whether founded on Marx, Islam, or anything else, is a world of answers rather than questions. There, the novel has no place. ~ Milan Kundera
Paretsky Novels quotes by Milan Kundera
I didn't have any writer friends in college. I was a computer science major, but I was writing a lot, probably more than anybody I knew. I started to submit novels to New York when I was a freshman in college. ~ Watt Key
Paretsky Novels quotes by Watt Key
Incidental, all of it, of course, but this was what this city bestowed that novels couldn't: not what you needed in order to live, but what made the living worth doing in the first place. ~ Garth Risk Hallberg
Paretsky Novels quotes by Garth Risk Hallberg
He was a man of very few words, and as it was impossible to talk, one had to keep silent. It's hard work talking to some people, most often males. I have a Theory about it. With age, many men come down with testosterone autism, the symptoms of which are a gradual decline in social intelligence and capacity for interpersonal communication, as well as a reduced ability to formulate thoughts. The Person beset by this Ailment becomes taciturn and appears to be lost in contemplation. He develops an interest in various Tools and machinery, and he's drawn to the Second World War and the biographies of famous people, mainly politicians and villains. His capacity to read novels almost entirely vanishes; testosterone autism disturbs the character's psychological understanding. ~ Olga Tokarczuk
Paretsky Novels quotes by Olga Tokarczuk
In seventh grade, with some vague sense that I wanted to be a writer, I crouched in the junior high school library stacks to see where my novels would eventually be filed. It was right after someone named Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. So I grabbed a Vonnegut book, 'Breakfast of Champions' and immediately fell in love. ~ Jess Walter
Paretsky Novels quotes by Jess Walter
From the very first moment I saw you,
My heart has raced with adrenaline. Stomach full of butterflies and one mind hopelessly full of love. ~ Hope Alcocer
Paretsky Novels quotes by Hope Alcocer
I read as many novels as you do. Maybe more. I'm just not sure I want to write one. ~ Lenore Appelhans
Paretsky Novels quotes by Lenore Appelhans
It is my belief that the writer, the free-lance author, should be and must be a critic of the society in which he lives. ... That is all I ask of the author. To be a hero, appoint himself a moral leader, wanted or not. I believe that words count, that writing matters, that poems, essays, and novels - in the long run - make a difference. If they do not, then in the words of my exemplar Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, the writer's work is of no more importance than the barking of village dogs at night. ~ Edward Abbey
Paretsky Novels quotes by Edward Abbey
Fobbit is fast, razor sharp, and seven kinds of hilarious. Thank you, Mr. Abrams, for the much needed salve
it feels good to finally laugh about Iraq. Fobbit deserves a place alongside Slaughterhouse Five and Catch-22 as one of our great comic novels about the absurdity of war. ~ Jonathan Evison
Paretsky Novels quotes by Jonathan Evison
Ship," he said absently. "A boat is something you haul aboard a ship. ~ Sara Paretsky
Paretsky Novels quotes by Sara Paretsky
If you write a book set in the past about something that happened east of the Mississippi, it's a 'historical novel.' If you write about something that took place west of the Mississippi, it's a 'Western'- and somehow regarded as a lesser work. I write historical novels about the frontier. ~ Louis L'Amour
Paretsky Novels quotes by Louis L'Amour
Novels are to love as fairy tales to dreams. ~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Paretsky Novels quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Sometimes life seems so painful it hurts even to move my arms. ~ Sara Paretsky
Paretsky Novels quotes by Sara Paretsky
Of all the novels I've written, my favorite is 'Mick Harte Was Here'. ~ Barbara Park
Paretsky Novels quotes by Barbara Park
'Suttree' is a fat one, a book with rude, startling power and a flood of talk. Much of it takes place on the Tennessee River, and Cormac McCarthy, who has written 'The Orchard Keeper' and other novels, gives us a sense of river life that reads like a doomed 'Huckleberry Finn.' ~ Jerome Charyn
Paretsky Novels quotes by Jerome Charyn
She strove for poised composure, despite feeling like a powerless pawn in a despicable game of human chess, played for the amusement of those who enjoyed tragic endings at the expense of someone else's happiness - no - their very existence. ~ Collette Cameron
Paretsky Novels quotes by Collette Cameron
It's not like that, Ava! You don't understand the depth of our situation. There's so much that you just don't know. ~ Nicole Gulla
Paretsky Novels quotes by Nicole Gulla
There are often references to childhood, but they're rarely the focus of the [my] novels. ~ Paul Auster
Paretsky Novels quotes by Paul Auster
There's a real emphasis on being witty in Scotland, even in crime novels. ~ Denise Mina
Paretsky Novels quotes by Denise Mina
The day of the march, we were forbidden to go to the march site. The man I worked for, the Presbyterian minister, knew we would want to be sort of martyrs for the cause and risk arrest. He didn't want any of that going on. So he made us stay in the neighborhood. ~ Sara Paretsky
Paretsky Novels quotes by Sara Paretsky
My experience with My Sister Rosa showed me, once again, that I have a much easier time of it if I sell my novels after I finish them, not before. I'm lucky that I'm in a position where I'm able to do that. ~ Justine Larbalestier
Paretsky Novels quotes by Justine Larbalestier
When you're doing characters from famous novels, you have a responsibility as an actor to make it what the writer intended. And then you add and expand from there to create a three-dimensional performance. ~ David Suchet
Paretsky Novels quotes by David Suchet
Despite what novels implied, vampirism did not make stalking sexy. ~ Thomm Quackenbush
