Okay:

By belonging to Sophie, I began to feel as though I belonged to everyone else as well. My true place in the world, it turned out, was somewhere beyond myself, and if that place was inside me, it was also unlocatable. This was the tiny hole between self and not-self, and for the first time in my life I saw this nowhere as the exact center of the world.

this is excellent but I meant more about language and words

Sorry, that's all the book has to say about language and words. Tough! But yeah it's an interesting topic. I try to make note of other interesting references to Adam's naming game and also the story about the Tower of Babel, which I dig. It's fascinating stuff. If you don't know it already, see if you can find yourself a copy of Jorge Luis Borges' story called Library of Babel. It's about a library whose books contain every possible combination of letters. Anyway, back to desperate housewives!

excuse me?

desperate housewives?! oh no!

you'd have to give me more information about the book to get me read it: description of the main characters anf how you see they can relate to me, etc. it would also be effective if you provided corresponding drawings and sketches. the best thing to do, of course, would be for you to record an audio-reading of it all with different voices
