Which Literary Couple Are You And Your Significant Other?

The Death Of The Patriarch: Remembering Gabriel García Márquez I have read "100 Years of Solitude" about every ten years or so since the first time I read it. Each time I have read a different book. As I grow older I see layers that, for me, did not exist before. I believe I will start on it again tonight.

Arctic Summer, by Damon Galgut. "In retelling [E.M.] Forster’s story as a story, maybe that’s Galgut’s signal contribution: a reminder that however scrupulous we are about the facts, the result will always in some sense be fiction." - Rohan Maitzen

“Experience in itself wasn’t enough. The diary was my defense against waking up at the end of my life and realizing I’d missed it.” - Sarah Manguso

"Our Diaries, Ourselves." Mythili G. Rao on Ongoingness: The End of a Diary and The Folded Clock: A Diary.

Emily of New Moon, by L.M. Montgomery. “I am going to write a diary that it may be published when I die.”

I wondered what did my favorite books look like without words. Can you tell them apart or are they all a-mush? In fact, they can be quite distinct.
