Roy Lewis 'Once upon an ice age' (Also published as 'And what we did to Father' and as 'The evolution man')

"It was love at first sight. The first time Yossarian saw the chaplain he fell madly in love with him."

Joseph Heller 'Catch 22'

"When the Great War broke out, it came to me not as a superlative tragedy, but as an interruption of the most exasperating kind to my personal plans"

Vera Brittain 'Testament of youth'
