“Do not, under any circumstances, belittle a work of fiction by trying to turn it into a carbon copy of real life; what we search for in fiction is not so much reality but the epiphany of truth.” – Azar Nafisi, Reading Lolita in Tehran, pp. 3
LitWyrm is a blog dedicated to celebrating and learning from the books we love. As we discuss all kinds of literature, from picture books to poetry to post-modern narratives, we’ll focus on the truths found in those works. You can expect to find book reviews and articles, as well as original stories and the occasional author interview. We’ll dive deep into the themes addressed in novels or simply share what we love about particular characters and settings.
As you read through articles found on this site, I encourage you to join in the discussion. Share your thoughts about the works and what they’ve meant to you. Each of us brings our own stories with us as we enter the common ground of books, and so books can become the perfect meeting place for our differing perspectives.
Thank you for reading and welcome to LitWyrm.
