The literature blog collects some citations from novelists from the blooming scene of ecological and socially engaged literature.
You should not do what you are told to do but what you wish to be
(The mother of the main female character “Cee”, in the novel Home)
What future do you hope for? I hope for a peaceful settlement of whatever deal it is that humans have made with our planet. We might not persist but the planet will.
(Barbara Kingsolver, Sidney opera house, podcast, 7 august 2018)
