"Shew, this is fascinating! So much we don't know about this vast place. I didn't even know about the Aral Sea ecological disaster." Oct 25, 2020 02:43AM

Arundhati Roy
“Let's leave one alive so that it can be lonely.”
Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things

David Sedaris
“When I was seven years old, my family moved to North Carolina. When he was seven years old, Hugh’s family moved to the Congo. We had a collie and a house cat. They had a monkey and two horses named Charlie Brown and Satan. I threw stones at stop signs. Hugh threw stones at crocodiles. The verbs are the same, but he definitely wins the prize when it comes to nouns and objects.”
David Sedaris, Me Talk Pretty One Day

Arundhati Roy
“And on Ammu's road (to Age and Death) a small, sunny meadow appeared. Copper grass spangled with blue butterflies. Beyond it, an abyss.”
Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things

Robin Sloan
“Walking the stacks in a library, dragging your fingers across the spines -- it's hard not to feel the presence of sleeping spirits.”
Robin Sloan, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

Arundhati Roy
“It was raining when Rahel came back to Ayemenem. Slanting silver ropes slammed into loose earth, plowing it up like gunfire. The old house on the hill wore its steep, gabled roof pulled over its ears like a low hat.”
Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things
