100% would love to read about your reading technique to write Babel

Yes..(I have lectured before about a related reading technique I call vocal training; I can publish those notes as a Substack essay sometime if that would be of interest.)

Wow... do you have a long reading list for Babel? I think I saw one on your twt, but do you have a list of fictional ones?

Have you read “Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell”? I think it matches what you’re looking for, since the writing is close to Neil Gaiman’s, it has rival magicians like “The Prestige”, the humor is nonsensical, and it features an original story interwoven with historical facts like your previous work.

love JS&MN. it was one of the inspirations for BABEL!

omg I was already sure I was gonna love it, but knowing it was partially inspired by JS&MN only makes me that more anxious to read it.

(also: I’m the sensitive reader for the Poppy War series translations here in Brazil. hi! ☺️)
