Every River Runs to Salt, Rachael K. Jones, 2018

A Commonplace Book

If I didn’t already know Imani’s story about the family glacier, I probably would have laughed in her face. But I could see how a part-glacier woman cursed with yearning might feel something like love for an ocean. How something in her nature would look into the waves and find the shape of a soulmate. It gave me a sick squirmy feeling in the pit of my stomach I couldn’t name.
