“We're all ghosts. We all carry, inside us, people who came before us.”
Liam Callanan, The Cloud Atlas

“Every town, every book, is a way to say, look, there’s a new way, a different way. Every book in a bookstore is a fresh beginning. Every book is the next iteration of a very old story. Every bookstore, therefore, is like a safe‑ deposit box for civilization.”
Liam Callanan, Paris by the Book

“I didn't think, then, that we could ever be closer. I'm not sure anyone can. I'm not sure there is a place closer to someone than being at their side, awake, while they're asleep.”
Liam Callanan, The Cloud Atlas
