“Maybe that was love. Choking sounds and silence”
Toni Morrison. The Bluest Eye
If you have read the very well-written and very shocking short story cycle The Shawl by Cynthia Ozick, then you may find this interview quite enlightening, both in content and in the delightful and powerful expression of Ozick.
“In the madness of despair lies the sanity of hope”.
First of all, I wanted to wish you all a happy new year!
What a better way of starting the year than talking of books, particularly of those endless best-of lists published everywhere when the year comes to an end/starts afresh. I was extremelly glad to see that against all odds the Nigerian young author Chimamanda Adichie’s last novel, Americanah has been given the first place in the well-coveted New York Times’ 10 Best Books list.
