What moves you most in a work of literature?

Weirdness mixed with tenderness. Moments where a little sliver of light appears, something that can help you find a way toward something better.

I tend to love books where freakishness isn’t presented as something inhuman, but rather an affirmation of what it means to be a human being trying to survive in a very inhospitable world.

— Kevin Wilson, By the Book, NYT
