Famous quotes containing the words book and/or companion:

    The last publicized center of American writing was Manhattan. Its writers became known as the New York Intellectuals. With important connections to publishing, and universities, with access to the major book reviews, they were able to pose as the vanguard of American culture when they were so obsessed with the two Joes—McCarthy and Stalin—that they were to produce only two artists, Saul Bellow and Philip Roth, who left town.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)

    ... they think that Miss America belongs to them! That they can touch her and give her a kiss on the cheek—or even on the lips!
    Ellie Ross, Travelling companion for Miss Americas. As quoted in Miss America, ch. 17, by Ann-Marie Bivans (1991)
