Knox’s command of the English language is phenomenal! His vocabulary is top notch! I enjoyed his use of about three levels of language: formal language, everyday language with slang, and “slave” language.
The anthology was full of powerful quotes. The following four sayings are my favorites because they summarize some of the main themes of the book: “You’ll never know how strong you are until being strong is no longer a choice.” “Just ‘cus you been treated like dirt don’t mean you’re dirt.” “Ditch the slave mentality” “Nothing is concrete. We’re all stuck in an emulsion.”
I look forward to reading more from this author!
