Jeanette Winterson, i "Lighthousekeeping"

'He [Babel Dark] bought his Bible with him, and it was always his own story he read - not that you would know it, being so poorly brought up - but the story he read was of the first Tower of Babel in the book of Genesis.
'That tower was built as high as the moon, so that the people who built it could climb up and be like God. When it came shattering down, the people were scattered to the ends of the earth, and they no more understood each other's language than they understood the language of fishes and birds.
'I said to him one day, "Why do you read that story, Minister?" He said to me, "Pew, I have become a stranger in my own life."'
