Its a tangled road
a snarl of yarn that cant be unraveled
there is one exit, being a maze,
the blue sky alone, opening above.
I have been chasing you
hoping to glimpse the far-off place
you gaze at, to see past your back,
around corners of dawn, past noons in the park.
Along rivers of evenings, overpasses of darkness
a map of days was followed,
yet coming to an open view of the mountains
I lost sight of your receding form.
I've read Such a Long Journey and Tales From Firozsha Baag, both of which are excellent. Either of those would be a good next step.

Don't remember Joyce Carol Oates being anything like that high last year, unless my memory's going? That's the most interesting thing in there for me.Bjorn wrote:From Orthofer on twitter: Ladbrokes odds up. Phew. Finally something substantial for journalists to base their speculations on.
The list is pretty much same ol' same ol', though I'm impressed that Chang-rae Lee is apparently important enough to be listed twice.
