    Paul Auster
    Every life is inexplicable, I kept telling myself. No matter how many facts are told, no matter how many details are given, the essential thing resists telling. To say that so and so was born here and went there, that he did this and did that, that he married this woman and had these children, that he lived, that he died, that he left behind these books or this battle or that bridge – none of that tells us very much.
    Paul Auster, The New York Trilogy

    I turned to books for comfort. (Former First Lady, Laura Bush)
