But, this book deserves it. Jansma has taken patches of vignettes and pieced
them together into a beautiful quilt. Imagine being told the same story over and
over, but with an ever-changing set of circumstances, details, and even
characters. Yet, the ultimate truth of the story is revealed as much by the
differences as by the similarities. It very nearly defies explanation, much
better experienced. The Unchangeable
Spots of Leopards is an exploration of the mania of writing, friendship,
love, the lies we tell others, the lies we tell ourselves and the greater truths
hidden in our lies.
