Among other people, I would very much like to be Deborah Eisenberg when I grow up. Think about it-- as a bonus, you'd be married to Wallace Shawn. Not too shabby.

“Families were nothing more than hope cast out in a wide net, everyone wanting only the best.”
Emma Straub, The Vacationers

“There was nothing in life harder or more important than agreeing every morning to stay the course, to go back to your forgotten self of so many years ago, and to make the same decision. Marriages, like ships, needed steering, and steady hands at the wheel.”
Emma Straub, The Vacationers

“Once Charles arrived, Franny would start laughing the way she had when she was twenty-four, and the rest of them could start setting one another on fire for all she cared. That’s what best friends did: ruin people for everyone else.”
Emma Straub, The Vacationers
