Zitat des Tages von Jane Hamilton:
I think we're all more alike than we want to believe sometimes.
I've always broken out in hives when I go into any organized religious situation.
I'm really glad I had those years working on the orchard alongside my husband.

We didn't have a TV until I was 12.
Author tours used to have a sense of excitement and pleasure, a sense of occasion. I remember stores having a table with wine and food. It was just a real evening.
