I read this for the first time when I was 15 and got caught up in the romance, the tragedy, the intrigue in the novel. But, now, many years later after reading it again, what struck me was the relationship of the men. Because, let's be honest, women ...more

I received this book from a dear friend and it spent years on my bookshelf until I finally finished it. What a bizarre book for a modern Arab-American to read. On the one hand, Stark is completely phenomenal to be a woman with two other female compan ...more

Jeanette Winterson
“Tell me the story, Pew. . . .
It was a woman.
You always say that.
There's always a woman somewhere, child; a princess, a witch, a stepmother, a mermaid, a fairy godmother, or one as wicked as she is beautiful, or as beautiful as she is good.

That's another story.”
Jeanette Winterson

Wendell Berry
“It may be that when we no longer know which way to go that we have come to our real journey. The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings.”
