Quotable Thursday

This week for Quotable Thursday I'm reading Palimpsest by Catherynne M Valente...I actually just started this book this morning, so today, you're getting the opening lines of Palimpsest.
"On the corner of 16th street and Hieratica a factory sings and sighs. Look: its thin spires flash green, and spit long loops of white flame into the night. Casmira owns this place, as did her father and her grandmother and probably her most distant progenitor. It is pleasant to imagine them, curling and uncurling their proboscis fingers against machines of stick and bone..."
Quotable Thursday originally brought to you by Bookshelf Fantasies.
