In our studio group crits, while I was telling to my group about my idea someone suggest me the book “Nutshell” by Ian McEwan. These are some parts from this book that I found them interesting. It’s a novel for an unborn child telling the story of his parents. I didn’t read the whole book but I liked these parts and I found them inspiring.

“..,not an inch of space to myself.”

“..the beginning of conscious life was the end of illusion, the illusion of non-being, and the eruption of the real.”

“..heard clearly, so efficiently did sound waves travel through jawbone and clavicle, down through her skeletal structure, swiftly through the nourishing amniotic.”

“ secret sea..”

“..a bouncy castle..”
