“The whole human race is in a love-hate relationship with change.”









I requested this book on NetGalley because I have come to love Lia Louis’ take on life, despite not knowing her at all.  Her daily musings on Twitter have me laughing out loud as often as they have me nodding in recognition and appreciation of their sagacity.  This author is someone with a talent for noticing and pointin

“It is that quick, it is that strong, it is that beautiful. And it is also totally impossible.”
Kate Ling, The Loneliness of Distant Beings
