• The novels we read allow us to encounter possible persons, versions of ourselves hat we would never see, never permit ourselves to see, never permit ourselves to become, in places we can never go and might not care to, while assuring that we get to return home again

    Thomas C. Foster
  • Don't wait for writers to be dead to be read; the living ones can use the money

  • Reading...is a full-contact sport; we crash up against the wave of words with all of our intellectual, imaginative, and emotional resources

  • Rain falls on the just and the unjust alike

    Thomas C. Foster
  • Literary works are not democracies. We hold this truth to be self-evident, that all men and women are created equal. We may, but the country of Novels, Etc., doesn't. In that faraway place, no character is created equal. One or two of them get all the breaks; the rest exist to get them to the finish line

    Thomas C. Foster
