Wow! I love that complete last paragraph, Anna. I just finished the book last night, and enjoyed it immensely.

By the way - I have unending covetousness of your blog... (What a weird word!)

It's such a beautiful book, isn't it? I found myself loving it more as it went on.

And for the record: I am a big fan of weird words!

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
