Saturday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation. You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, amuse, bemuse or simply muse, but not abuse.
Identity politics divides us; fiction connects. One is interested in sweeping generalisations, the other in nuances. One draws boundaries, the other recognises no frontiers. Identity politics is made of solid bricks; fiction is flowing water. – Elif Safak
