Big Daddy (Griff) Quote of the Day: The Snakes, p. 112

Dad tells his daughter Bea, certified sjw, that he thinks her husband might leave her because he’s: a) mixed race and Bea is white; b) he’s very good-looking, and Bea, unlike her mother, isn’t.

  • “The human need for justice can be exploited so easily, and waves of passion sweep over whole populations — the true belief that they are right — and then they’re liberated to do terrible things. The collective can turn either way.”

After dinner, Bea gets up to wash the dishes but her mother and Alex get to the kitchen ahead of her.

“We’re fine. We don’t need any help,” Bea’s mother says, and closes the kitchen door in Bea’s face.

Priceless, Priceless Quote of the Day, Self Can’t Even

The Snakes, p. 107

Griff (Bea’s Dad): You’re meant to flatter your kids, tell girls they’re beautiful. Whatever. I don’t care. You were never going to stop traffic. Not like your mum. Fighting them off, she was — still is, for all I know.

How come English writers can do this so well? Nothing like English melodrama. And they say the English are cold!

Remember how John Le Carré, not satisfied with his MC, George Smiley, being a spy, also had to make him a cuckold? And readers never complained or wound up thinking: this is taking away from the main story. It’s such a distraction!
