Truth for anyone is a very complex thing. For a writer, what you leave out says as much as those things you include. What lies beyond the margin of the text? The photographer frames the shot; writers frame their world.
Jeanette Winterson, Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?
I'm currently reading Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? A totally inspiring book and so beautifully written. It is the memoir of writer Jeanette Winterson. Absorbing, shocking, funny, spirited, profound and I love how she has infused it with thoughts on life and the power of the written word.
The copy I am reading belongs to the library but there are parts of it that I want to underline and make notes in the margin. (As I write that I can hear my mother's voice telling me you should NEVER write in books!). It's one of those books that will stay with me for a long time, requires a place on my bookshelf and which I'm sure will be further quoted here.
Which books inspire that for you? I'd love to know..... :)
