“Real readers poison themselves with words. They close each book as though climbing, reborn, from a tomb.”
David Gordon, White Tiger on Snow Mountain: Stories

“Anyway, that's all art school is. A big clusterfuck for rich poseurs. Who the fuck needs it? But it's a system, right? You have to go to the art schools to get into the galleries, to learn how to talk that bullshit. That's what they're learning, to talk bullshit.

The Serialist
David Gordon”
David Gordon, The Serialist

“This is the only boundary that nature herself imposes on us, the limitations on what we can accomplish, in space and time, with one body and one life.”
David Gordon, The Serialist
