I have no idea what I meant here, but I still remember enjoying this book.

[The Djinn in the Nightingale's Eye, by A.S. Byatt]

I read a collection of fairy tales by A.S. Byatt over the weekend, including The Djinn in the Nightingale’s Eye, which I liked, even though one would think I had very little in common with the protagonist. The way that reading stories sort of forces you outside of stories and yet trying to create a narrative out of your own life…it’s hard to explain, but it “resonated” with me.
