Inverted World is a tightly structured puzzle with an ending that, while shocking, makes perfect, mathematical sense. Priest is not hiding in the corners of the book, snickering because he fooled you. He’s probably just happy you were so involved in the reading, even if you had to look up the word “hyperbola.”I HAD REACHED the age of six hundred and fifty miles.

The male part of the rice plant is the stamen. It is made up of two parts the anther and the filament. The filament is long, thin and supports the anther at the tip. I also own a golliwog doll as the only souvenir I brought back from UK that I found in an antique store (or tourist gift shop?) next to a castle in Wales. I bought it the same week a British runway model made the news for punching someone who called her a golliwog. It so ridiculously racist of a caricature that I both think it funny and yet I have it hidden in the basement..
