A Great Sentence.

"She asked for nothing, refused his gifts, disappeared into an inaccessible dimension of her own for most of every day but always returned, demure and self-effacing as ever until she undressed, after which she was a fire and he her slow but eager fuel."

- Salman Rushdie, from "Shalimar The Clown"

I've just begun this book and so far it has my mind so excited that I have to put it down every page or so just to let it sink in. I've never read Rushdie before but I think I am becoming a big fan.
