“On July 29, six days after I had arrived in Paris, Fin and I moved into the new lodgings on the top floor of the hotel next door, where, beyond the pigeons who occupied the window ledge, you could see the turrets of Notre Dame. The concierge told us not to feed the birds, but we gave them our stale bread just the same, and so our flock became a feathered multitude, pushing and shoving one another behind the cracked glass. In the afternoons the light seemed to have feathers in it.”
Rebecca Stott, The Coral Thief

“Science doesn't reduce things, or explain mysteries away; it just discovers stranger and stranger things.”
Rebecca Stott, Ghostwalk

“It's only when you've pieced together a story in several different ways that you realise where the holes are, discover the knowledge that is still missing, the questions you still need to ask.”
Rebecca Stott, Ghostwalk
