"Loyalty to oneself and ethical ideals are at the heart of this brilliant and surprising novel. Environment, red tape, crime, capitalism, and survival are topics ably fielded alongside of faithful stewardship, friendship, and what makes a family. If you're looking for a thoughtful, fast-paced, mad-cap, entertaining novel which will delight you, pick this up. You will not be disappointed, and you'll come away thinking—which is never a bad thing. Res upp! Life is GOOD!" —Tanita Davis, Finding Wonderland

my journal

It's got bits pasted all over it and stuffed into its pages, torn strips of subway maps and tickets and the orphaned sentences of other people and a lost key and an illustrated plate of a small brown moth. Why? Insulation, maybe. If I use glue on it, if I doodle and fold and use it as a junk drawer, then I can shrug at all the scratched-out mess that would otherwise be cleanly deleted.

Every now and then I might share some scribbles, even though I know it's just scribbles. Everyone's got those.


Resistance is interesting.
