Thoughtful and moving. This near the end sticks with me: "All that is to come will change the way right now is seen; right now is so certain, right now is forever; what is to come will make, distort, and even erase right now; and right now is all the ...more

“Books allowed her vicarious tastes of infinite variety, but they didn't supplant the need to venture out into the big and the messy. In fact, just the opposite. Books convinced her that something more existed---something intuitive, beyond reason---and they whetted her appetite to find it.”
Masha Hamilton, The Camel Bookmobile

“The stories she'd read of others' lives over these last few months had left her with a greater appreciation for the thread of her own life.”
Masha Hamilton, The Camel Bookmobile

“I'll be back," she said. "Very soon."
He needed to reply. He needed to say Good, come back; better, Don't go; or better still, I'll join you. He wanted to say, Your neck is beautiful. He wanted to say, I never ever thought my life would hold this, and if your leaving is what I must give for what I was given, then it was worth it.
But the children were all around and Mr Abasi was calling out and motioning for her to come, and anyway, he knew now, if he hadn't known before, that there were limitations to words - words in the air or on a page.”
Masha Hamilton, The Camel Bookmobile
