The Fish Girl by Mirandi Riwoe
"This book is my favourite reads of the year so far. I picked it up to flick through and didn’t get up until I finished it. So beautifully written. The story has stayed with me and, even though I read it a while ago, I still think about it often. Q..." Read more of this review »
The Fish Girl by Mirandi Riwoe
"The Fish Girl by Mirandi Riwoe is a short, grim story about an Indonesian girl, Mina, whose life changes when her father sends her to work for a Dutch merchant.

And what will she wear? What is the town like? Who will she work with? She asks herself..." Read more of this review »
The Fish Girl by Mirandi Riwoe
"I really enjoyed this story. I find adaptations really interesting - I like the feeling of a story expanding to be seen from different perspectives.

I haven't read the original short story that this is based on (The Four Dutchmen by W. Somerset Ma..." Read more of this review »
The Fish Girl by Mirandi Riwoe
"A deceptively simple loss of innocence tale set during the colonisation of the East Indies by the Dutch.
The writing style is clever as it lulls the reader into a false sense of security before delivering a powerful wallop at the end. I had very mi..." Read more of this review »

The Kiss by Kathryn Harrison
“We're taught to expect unconditional love from our parents, but I think it is more the gift our children give us. It's they who love us helplessly, no matter what or who we are.”

Oscar Wilde
“Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.”
Oscar Wilde

Theodore Roosevelt
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Mark Twain
“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to reform (or pause and reflect).”
Mark Twain

Frank Herbert
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune

Mark Twain
“Never tell the truth to people who are not worthy of it.”
Mark Twain
