i don't understand most of what's happening but i love the language: "I missed a stair and grabbed the banister four steps down. The building hurled me into the park. I caught my balance."

I stopped in the Sultanahmet Jammi. The blue designs rose on the dome above me. It was restful....The stones were cold under my bare feet. The designs keep going, taking your eyes up and out of yourself. ... In the second story of the old teahouse across the park I sat in a corner away from the stove and tried to wrestle my characters towards their endings... Endings to be useful must be inconclusive.

"“THIS IS WHY HE IS CHASING YOU-or making you chase him. He needs order. He needs patterning, relation, the knowledge that comes when six notes predict a seventh, when three notes beat against one another and define a mode, a melody defines a scale. Music is the pure language of temporal and co-temporal relation."

We have taken over their abandoned world, and something new is happening to the fragments...You must take its importance exactly as that: it is indefinable; you are involved in it; it is wonderful, fearful, deep, ineffable to your explanations, opaque to your efforts to see through it; yet it demands you take journeys, defines your stopping and starting points, can propel you with love and hate, even to seek death...

"When you go through the gate at Branning-at-sea and leave the country, you retreat to the country for your vocabulary to describe it: rivers of men and torrents of women, storms of voices, rains of fingers and jungles of arms. But it’s not fair to Branning. It’s not fair to the country either."

"A fly bobbed on a branch, preening the crushed prism of his wing (a wing the size of my foot) and thought a linear, arthropod music. I played it for him, and he turned the red bowl of his eye to me and whispered wondering praise." cool.
