Nathan's Recent Updates

“Reading is a bit like hallucinating.”
Nathan Filer, The Shock of the Fall

“Mental illness turns people inwards. That's what I reckon. It keeps up forever trapped by the pain of our own minds, in the same way that the pain of a broken leg or a cut thumb will grab your attention, holding it so tightly that your good leg or your good thumb seem to cease to exist.”
Nathan Filer, The Shock of the Fall

“I decided each name on each spine was the person who the book had been written for, rather than who had written it. I decided everyone in the world had a book with their name on, and if I searched hard enough I'd eventually find mine.”
Nathan Filer, The Shock of the Fall
