Sunday Sentence: The Moor's Account

As inspired by Fobbit author David Abrams at The Quivering Pen, the best sentence(s) I read this week, presented without further commentary or context:

Maybe there is no true story, only imagined stories, vague collections of what we saw and what we heard, what we felt and what we thought.

-- Laila Lalami, The Moor's Account

    1. It's historical fiction based on one sentence about a black servant in one of the 16th century Spanish expeditions to the New World. Episodic, dense, richly imagined. Laila Lalami is a wise person; this is the second book of hers I have read and admire her work highly.
