Quote of the Week: Diana Wynn Jones

“I think we ought to live happily ever after.”

So sad to lose Diana Wynne Jones (Howl’s Moving Castle, Dark Lord of Derkholm), such a deep font of wit and wisdom -- not to mention magic -- all these many years.
“Fantasy for me as a kid was real, and I had a fantasy about what life was, whether it was sort of wicked and dire, or wholly normal, or whatever. Anything really close to home is not, it seems to me, what a good book should be about.”
Good-night, Miss Jones. We’re missing you already.
