The angel is not human, and it holds nothing back, so how could anyone human win, what kind of a fight is that? It's not just. Losing means your soul thrown down in the dust, your heart torn out from God's. But you can't not lose."
Author: Tony Kushner

Author: Vikas Swarup

Author: Walter Isaacson
