Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl by Carrie Brownstein
""My narratives were often oblique; hers direct. She was bold; I described boldness."

Thought this quote from the book (referring to Corin Tucker) summed it up pretty well. "

“Being a man is bullshit; maybe trying to be a man had been the problem all along. At a certain point you just have to trust someone. Even if it’s only yourself.”
Bennett Madison, September Girls

“The world rushes through us. We are peaceful. We are as deep and black as space. Staring up at the stars, we see only our own image reflected back at us.

We are infinite and we are ravenous.”
Bennett Madison, September Girls

“Jeff is the annoying kind of Scrabble player who plays a lot of obscure two-letter words that shouldn't count but for whatever reason are considered legitimate. My father is the annoying kind of Scrabble player who takes hours with his turn and then plays deliberately misspelled words that no one has the heart to call him out on. I am the perfect Scrabble player, both serious and considerate. Obviously I lost by a lot.”
Bennett Madison, September Girls

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Well, she had her own sorry self, her own story, the snowflake of her life, but even as a child she had been unimpressed by the breathless adult observation that no two of these were exactly alike. In the first place, she had thought, how does anybody know that? And in the second place, so what?”
Jincy Willett, Amy Falls Down
