“Among Other Things, I’ve Taken Up Smoking” by Aoibheann Sweeney

There’s something very special about Among Other Things, I’ve Taken Up Smoking by Aoibheann Sweeney. I wish I could be more specific, but I honestly don’t think I can. There’s a feeling to it… a wholeness

I would say that opening this book is like closing your eyes and finding the universe staring at you. Constellations of stars, galaxies and a silence wise beyond words, beyond the word it inhabits.

“It is astonishing, in the end, how difficult it is to know the things you know. What I mean is that all I had discovered was everything I knew all along.”

Larger than life, I would call it. It was an experience that reminded me of why I keep falling in love with books and reading.

Don’t expect anything breathtaking, but do give it a chance to take your breath away, to take you away.
