"Now I'm learning something. Go into hard things quickly, eagerly, then retreat. It's the same for thinking, writing and life." – Miriam Toews, All My Puny Sorrows, page 243
**Since I read All My Puny Sorrows in early June, it has not left me. I think about its humour, compassion and hope daily. When the book prizes come around, I hope that AMPS is among the winners.
