„Watch your step. Keep your wits about you; you will need them.“

—  Michel Faber, libro The Crimson Petal and the White

First lines, Ch. 1
The Crimson Petal and the White (2002)
Contexto: Watch your step. Keep your wits about you; you will need them. This city I am bringing you to is vast and intricate, and you have not been here before. You may imagine, from other stories you've read, that you know it well, but those stories flattered you, welcoming you as a friend, treating you as if you belonged. The truth is that you are an alien from another time and place altogether.

„What you lack is the right connections, and that is what I've brought you here to make: connections.“

Contexto: What you lack is the right connections, and that is what I've brought you here to make: connections. A person who is worth nothing must introduce you to a person worth next-to-nothing, and that person to another, and so on and so forth until finally you can step across the threshold, almost one of the family.

„Trust is absolutely precious, and its betrayal horrifies me. I do want readers to trust me. And yet I don't want to offer them a safe, predictable ride.“

—  Michel Faber

Interview in 3 A.M Magazine (2002) http://www.3ammagazine.com/litarchives/2002_sep/interview_michel_faber.html
Contexto: Trust is absolutely precious, and its betrayal horrifies me. I do want readers to trust me. And yet I don't want to offer them a safe, predictable ride. The literary scene seems to be divided between "trustworthy" authors who give their fans a Big Mac that's totally unchallenging, and more ambitious authors who treat their readers with high-handed indifference. I want to earn the reader's trust while remaining unpredictable. I take the reader to some dark and emotionally uncomfortable places but never just for the sake of it. And I do care about how you're feeling on your journey. Many people have remarked on how readable and engaging they found The Crimson Petal despite its great length. That wasn't accidental. I thought very carefully about how to keep the reader intimate and awake.

„A single day spent doing things which fail to nourish the soul is a day stolen, mutilated, and discarded in the gutter of destiny.“

„Participating in Society in not a thing one can do naturally; one has to rehearse for it.“

„The world changes too fast. You take your eyes off something that's always been there, and the next minute it's just a memory.“
