I love this book. With the excitement of intrigue, the imagination of sci-fi, Wilson has woven a fabulous story. This is a page turner.

G. Willow Wilson
“Wonder and awe have gone out of your religions. You are prepared to accept the irrational, but not the transcendent.”
G. Willow Wilson, Alif the Unseen

G. Willow Wilson
“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

G. Willow Wilson
“If man's capacity for the fantastic took up as much of his imagination as his capacity for cruelty, the worlds, seen and unseen, might be very different.”
G. Willow Wilson, Alif the Unseen
