Tomorrow's New York Times Book Review devotes the "TBR: Inside the List"
column to discussing The Yale Book of Quotations, specifically my paucity
of quotations from recent literary fiction.  The columnist invites readers
to send in contributions of recent literary quotations and says that if
enough are sent in they will devote the back page to these suggestions for
the next edition of the YBQ.

So I would encourage ADS-L members to contribute to this worthy appeal (if
you can find good quotations from recent literary fiction, that is).
