Where reading can take you…Jean Rhys QUOTE FOR WRITERS (and people who like quotes)

library shelvesReading makes immigrants of us all. It takes us away from home, but more important, it finds homes for us everywhere.

Jean Rhys is the author of Wide Sargasso Sea, among other novels.
I don’t know much about her, but when I was surfing the internet  for this post I found a 2009 newspaper review of her biography It offers an insight into her troubled life and it would seem that she didn’t find a home anywhere. It makes me want to go back and read more of her writing, and read this biography too.
