Quote: Benjamin Percy

“Toss out the worst elements of genre and literary fiction–and merge the best. We might then create a new taxonomy, so that when you walk into a bookstore, the stock is divided into ‘Stories that suck’ and ‘Stories that will make your mind and heart explode with their goodness.'”

The Cartel By Don Winslow

Here’s a quote from Don Winslow’s forthcoming novel, The Cartel, that I wanted to share:cartel

“He became his own blues song, a Tom Waits Loser, a Kerouac saint, a Spingsteen hero under the lights of the American highway and the neon glow of the American strip. A fugitive, a share cropper, a hobo, a cowboy who knows that he’s running out of prairie but rides anyway because there’s nothing left but to ride.”
