Thanks, Jenn. I'm thrilled to be part of Team 7.13. (Want to add: I knew of you before because of the Public Books column 'An Engineer Reads a Novel'. As an engineer and a fan of Public Books, I always read it. :))

2019 is my year of reading or rereading as much of 's works as I can. I will always love THE BLUEST EYE the most because it was my first introduction to her & it grew out of a . And everyone should read the Nobel lecture, of course.

Thank you, Sari. I still can't wrap my head around how this essay resonated for so many. I'd never have thought of putting something like it out there if it hadn't been for you. (My heart is so full right now.)

It is, right? I've got these kinds of writing-related quotes saved in folders to inspire me when I get stuck with my own work. Usually does the trick. :)

Thank you, Letitia. It's been an interesting journey with the book, for sure. But I've learned a lot along the way too. So that's certainly part of the "good."

Right? She needs to be read a whole lot more. Now more so than ever too. Maybe her lovely writing about nature and wildlife will infuse the rest of us with a bit more caring and respect for our ecology too. Thank you for reading.

A quote from her diary while she was writing MRS DALLOWAY: "I dig out beautiful caves behind my characters; I think that gives exactly what I want; humanity, humor, depth. The idea is that the caves shall connect, and each comes to daylight at the present moment."
