Literary Birthday – 16 December – Sylvia Brownrigg

Happy Birthday, Sylvia Brownrigg, born 16 December 1964.

Five Quotes

  1. I plan to learn enough to read you like a book.
  2. I’d like to pay your palms the same favour that you pay these pages, searching them for grooves and images and the secret signs of hunger, as you may scan these words for hidden messages.
  3. This was another item about growing up: you encountered all the clichés of love and loss and heartbreak.
  4. I’ve always liked books that spoke to me on different levels, that give me something to think about as well as a story to get involved in.
  5. No wonder you want to be a writer. How can you not, with all that behind you? You practically are a novel already.
  6. The gap between the inner and outer self is one I’ve found interesting, even essential, about the way we move through the world.
