It is a hydra an organism stupid or dangerous in much of its behavior but could it have in spite of this a proper judgement about which of its component parts fit best together?” ― Peter Carey Oscar and LucindaA book to love A book to wade in submerge into A novel that tempts one to grab it around the middle and squeeze even as it dances away like a shadow It flickers like the quiet mirrored Doppler effect of water flowing around a pair of swans It plays coy It trips backwa
