When I write a story or a poem I am simply concerned about that story or that poem, but I have no general philosophy; I have no message to convey. I am not really a thinker. I am a man who is very puzzled - and generally speaking, very pleasantly puzzled - by life and by things, especially by books.
Jorge Luis Borges
The Chinese Girl
The first novel of the Stone Lewis series.
I thought The Chinese Girl was a smashing read. Funny, gripping and profound. Jean Hartley, author of The Marvel press, Philip Larkin, and me.
