Great Moments in Literature

“My favorite bit of Outside is the window. It’s different every time. A bird goes right by zoom, I don’t know what it was. The shadows are all long again now, mine waves right across our room on green wall. I watch God’s face falling slow slow, even orangier and the clouds are all colors, then after there’s streaks and dark coming up so bit-at-a-time I don’t see it till it’s done.”

–Emma Donoghue, Room, 2010

“THE ROARING SILENT SCREAM OF INTERSTELLAR SPACE RUSHES THROUGH THE SENSES OF THESE ONCE-MEN…SENSES ROOTED FIRMLY TO THE EARTH. THE GLOW OF A LIFETIME OF SUNS BLAZES ABOUT THE GLEAMING FIGURE AND HIS REARING, GOLDEN MOUNT. YOU STARE…YOU FOUR WHO CLAIM HUMANITY…AT THE VISION OF UTTER ALIEN-NESS…”

–Bill Mantlo, MARVEL PREMIERE, Vol. 1, No. 28, “There’s a Mountain on Sunset Boulevard!,” 1976
