Amanda K. King

Goodreads Author

in The United States

Member Since

Philip K. Dick

“Silence is only frightening to people who are compulsively verbalizing.”
William S. Burroughs, The Job: Interviews with William S. Burroughs

“Sometimes, I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me. How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It’s beyond me.”
