I'm reading Midnight's Children, by Salman Rushdie. I love that I have more time in my life for reading novels. I fear this will not be so when I begin my Masters next year. But let's not think about that just yet. Let's think about Rushdie and what a clever man he is.
I love that he doesn't waste a word; every scene, every character is deliberate and woven into the metanarrative. The sheer magnitude his stories is inspiring!
My favourite Rushdie extract so far? "Their curled bodies are a pair of question marks at the end of the puzzling sentence of the day" – The ground beneath her feet.
