“With its symmetry and little dashed isthmus between the two words, ‘hour-glass’ on the page is like the object itself, lying on its side or balanced mid-spin.”
Eley Williams, The Liar's Dictionary

“Too precise a meaning erases the mystery of your literature.”
Eley Williams, The Liar's Dictionary

“There are certain words that have such a pleasing consistency, texture, taste, colour, odour, network, milieu, stance, poise, arch, crane, comfort, peak, trough; limpid, tepid, torpid, torqued, liquid, lacquered, honeyed, latched, thatched, throstle-sunged, spangled words. The normal pH of these words is between 3.8 and 4.5, so there is some bit to them.”
Eley Williams, The Liar's Dictionary
