It’s been a while since I’ve dived into some good fiction but this was fun.

It doesn’t have much to do with the narrative but this was probably my favorite line:

“Whenever he’s not at ILM, Mat is working on some project of his own. He works with crazy intensity, feeding hours like dry twigs into the fire, just absolutely consuming them, burning them up. He sleeps lightly and briefly, often sitting up straight in a chair or lying pharaoh-like on the couch. He’s like a storybook spirit, a little djinn or something, except instead of air or water his element is imagination.”

Read it.
