Thursday Quotables: Harrowgate


Welcome back to Thursday Quotables! This weekly feature is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week.  Whether it’s something funny, startling, gut-wrenching, or just really beautifully written, Thursday Quotables is where my favorite lines of the week will be, and you’re invited to join in!


Harrowgate by Kate Maruyama
47North, 2013

Two coffins. One large, blonde wood, absolutely covered in white-and-cream-colored roses and Easter lilies and calla lilies, surrounded by green leaves of various shapes and sizes. They make the coffin look as if its organs have exploded out of its center and now lie in twisted tendrils, draping down its sides. Next to it, a small white coffin, barely visible for its matching disembowelment of flowers.

Creepy enough for ya? If you’d like to know more about Harrowgate, check out my review here.
