[Book Quote Tuesday] Fight Gravity…

"He loved more than anything to fly..."

Myra here.

It is that time of the week again where we share a book quote that seemed particularly striking for us.

For the month of January, our book quote theme is: FLY.

I read House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski (Amazon | Book Depository) a few years back. While there was much focus on form and structure and style, I felt there was something missing in the actual story itself. It was adorned with all the necessary postmodern elements, yet it failed to move me. Regardless, this quote spoke to me today.

Have you read House of Leaves? What did you think of this book?

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
