“gentlemen, welcome to the world of reality—there is no audience. no one to applaud, to admire. no one to see you. do you understand? here is the truth—actual heroism receives no ovation, entertains no one. no one queues up to see it. no one is interested.” david foster wallace / the pale king

this was david foster wallace’s last book, compiled by his editor after his death from the incomplete stories he left behind. it was shortlisted for the pulitzer the same year that no prize was awarded. it’s an interesting final look at a man who was equally tormented as he was brilliant. david foster wallace had an uncanny knack for putting into words the precise, strange thoughts of the everyday. -

I have this theory that the right book at the right time can change your life. my right book was peace like a river, i read it one year after my father died, and in it i found a young girl who loved words, and westerns, and her broken but beautiful family. it is the book i credit most for my love of reading. since then, i’ve pretty much hawked it to anyone who will listen, needless to say i was thrilled when @groveatlantic sent me the newest @leifenger novel (his first in 10 years) to add to my collection. virgil wander is a lyrical, touching tribute to middle america, and the people who live there. woven with a bit of magic and enger’s masterful prose, this is a book i’ve been waiting a long time to read. pub date: oct. 2nd, go preorder! -

“if we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel's heart beat, and we should die of that roar which lies on the other side of silence.” george elliot/ middlemarch

“[...] the extraordinary autumn weather that always comes as a surprise, when the sun hangs low and gives more heat than in spring, when everything shines so brightly in the rare clear atmosphere that the eyes smart, when the lungs are strengthened and refreshed by inhaling the aromatic autumn air, when even the nights are warm, and when in those dark warm nights, golden stars startle and delight us continually by falling from the sky.” war and peace / tolstoy.

taking a momentary break from unpacking to sit beneath open windows and settle in the autumn air. #whpdailylife -
