Mister Pip

I’m reading this incredible piece of fiction by Lloyd Jones called Mister Pip. If you enjoy the type of writing that makes you think, “how did you come up with a sentence to describe that thing I’ve always unconsciously noticed but never said out loud”, you should read this book.

“You cannot pretend to read a good book. Your eyes will give you away. So will your breathing. A person entranced by a book simply forgets to breathe. The house can catch alight and a reader deep in a book will not look up until the wallpaper is up in flames.” – from Mister Pip
