Hello everyone! I've been away from Goodreads for several years and am just trying to get the hang of things again. Do you find blog updates from authors useful? What would you like to see?

“A story is a story, and one may glean from it what one likes. Good sense need not enter into it.”
G. Willow Wilson, Alif the Unseen

“All translations are made up" opined Vikram, "Languages are different for a reason. You can't move ideas between them without losing something”
G. Willow Wilson, Alif the Unseen

“I have had much experience with the unclean and uncivilized in the recent past. Shall I tell you what I discovered? I am not the state of my feet. I am not the dirt on my hands or the hygiene of my private parts. If I were these things, I would not have been at liberty to pray at any time since my arrest. But I did pray, because I am not these things. In the end, I am not even myself. I am a string of bones speaking the word God.”
G. Willow Wilson, Alif the Unseen
