"to not say something is as political as to say something"
- Arundhati Roy
so true in the context of life i am living now...
"when you’re writing fiction, the world is different because you, sort of, come home with sentences like other people come home with shopping"
"There’s such a polarisation and hardening of things in the world around. There are other languages in my head now. It is not the English-speaking world I move in all that much anymore, even though I do think it’s necessary to engage with it and not lose that feeling of continuing to journey between these worlds.Less and less of us are doing that."
and for more who roll over roy's writings, here's something to savour
