What novel is this quote from?

I'm trying to find a quote from a book I read way back in my English Lit. days. The general gist of the quote is that the best or only way to avoid the angry fist of God is to make sure that you remain in the palm of His hand. It is a quote from a book written by an African American. I'm thinking Zora Neale Hurston or Toni Morrison maybe. I can't remember the actual wording of the quote, so google is not helping. Sound familiar to anyone? Thanks much.

Help me drag my uncle out of the literary dark ages!

My uncle recently mentioned to me that he's never read any book written by a woman. Apparently this is because he doesn't think they'll be any good - he seems to think women can only write romance novels. I find this both horrific and hard to believe, but he seemed serious. So, Hive Mind, I need your help in drafting a list of the very best books written by female authors. Help me teach him the error of his ways! [more inside]

Looking for Hot Fiction!

Looking for good sexy action novels. Not really interested in porn or erotic fiction where sex is the primary conceit; rather I am interest in action, thrillers, suspense, etc., but with a healthy dose of sex. Not really interested in romance either; I tried Jacqueline Carey and Emma Holly but could not get into them. I will try any other genre though. Sex with Aliens? Yeah -- that sounds interesting. I liked the Species movies. Sex with Vampires -- sounds biting. I enjoyed True Blood. I guess I am looking for good erotic thrillers in print but something I can take to the pool without looking too much like a pervert. Bonus points if it comes in an audio version so I can listen at work. Thanks!

Series of books about WWI pilots

I once heard about a series of novels about WWI pilots in the vein of the Aubrey-Maturin series, or Flashman. Might have had "Hell" in the title. It was basically about a bunch of crazy guys who knew that they had a good chance of dying. IIRC, the commander of the group had to justify buying silk scarves for the pilots to keep their necks from chafing. Any ideas?
