Awesome Quotes: Tender Morsels

"But then I found that human wants are like an evil fart; they will swell to fill every corner of whatever wealth is available." (Margo Lanagan's Tender Morsels, page 99)

I laughed myself silly at this.

If I find other such fabulous quotes in other books, this just might become a regular feature.


  1. i was just discussing our library's mock printz (which i was unable to attend) with a colleague, and she absolutely loved this book! i just put it on hold for myself. :)

  2. Emily - Thanks for commenting! As per my review, note that there are some slow sections, but on the whole, it is *quite* a tale, with a treasure trove of similarly absurd lines. I hope you enjoy it!
