Doing: Calamity Physics

I've been trying to find a good quote about resurrection for today, but nothing screamed at me--that is--until I got the Barnes & Noble bargain book list in my inbox. Marisha Pessl's Special Topics in Calamity Physics is in the bargain book list.


This book was so good. I recommend you get your bargain copy and settle in for a long evening's read. I am resurrecting this awesome shiz from the bargain book table. Happy Easter.

From Special Topics in Calamity Physics

"… We’ll look back on this moment and detest ourselves. It’ll be a thing we won’t get over for years and years and then we’ll die alone with tons of cats or be hit by cars. We’ll end up road pizzas—"

"Will you shut the fuck up?" shouted Charles. "I—I’m tired of hearing this shit every fucking weekend! You’re a fucking moron. All of you!"

He banged his glass on the bar and raced from the room, his cheeks red, his hair the color of the palest, barest wood, the soft kind you could dent with your thumbnail, and then seconds later—none of us spoke—we heard the front door thump, the whining motor of his car as he sped down the driveway.

"Is it me or is it obvious none of this ends happily," Jade said.
