Things I Like — Reading as a Grown-up

I have always loved reading, the devine pleasures of losing oneself in emotions and ideas and adventures not your own.

Gradually, a style entirely new has entered my reading lexicon.

One which juggles layers of knowing and understanding and meta-textuals — historical, cognitive and narratalogical — which, quite simply, feels like dancing with a talented partner.

Following a trail of intricate breadcrumbs, spinning and diving like a dolphin in the salt-spray of words; reaching the end of a passage breathless and dizzy with delight. Full of things unsaid and unknowable. Like a really fancy-pants pyramid of comedy.
