Sparks recently went on record as saying he is a greater novelist than Cormac McCarthy. This is true in the same sense that I am a better novelist than William Shakespeare. Sparks also said his novels are like Greek Tragedies. This may actually be true. I can’t check it out because, tragically, no really bad Greek tragedies have survived.

To be sure, I resent the sacrilege Nicholas Sparks commits by mentioning himself in the same sentence as Cormac McCarthy. I would not even allow him to say “Hello, bookstore? This is Nicholas Sparks. Could you send over the new Cormac McCarthy novel?” He should show respect by ordering anonymously.

"Because of the nature of the ingenue roles I had seen her play, I thought of her— offstage— as an onstage ingenue. Very pure and very demure. Once she’d been hired, she sat with us during the casting sessions and when people came out who weren’t very good, I was surprised and delighted to find out that she had a kind of peppery tone. It demolished the vision of the simpering ingenue forever." -Sheldon Harnick on Barbara Cook in She Loves Me.

"Now, in the Hippodrome there was a tower which stood opposite the spectators; beneath it were the starting posts, which opened into the racecourse through parallel arches and above were fixed four gilt-bronze horses, their necks somewhat curved as if they eyed each other as they raced round the last lap."

Nicetas Choniates, an 8th Century Byzantine historian wrote of these horses when they first stood at the Hippodrome in Constantinople. Following the 1204 sack of the city by Western forces during the Fourth Crusade, they were pillaged by Venetian general Enrico Dandolo. Sent to Venice, they were eventually placed over the portico of the Basilica of St Mark.

Favorite Broadway Ladies | Angela Lansbury 

"Believe me, it jabs you. When you’re on the side of buses and New York loves you, you love to go out there every night. It’s like a race. Curtain opens, out you go, and New York is yours."
