“I patch together a living language out of reanimated parts, like Frankenstein, and feel no disgust at scrabbling in the charnel house. Each of us makes her own monster, who earns a cozy co-tenancy of our tomb. We’re all the last native speakers of a language that dies with us. Am I so special for tasting the rot on my tongue? For knowing whose remains I’m kitted out in?”
Shelley Jackson, Half Life

“I began to invent something new: a way to hang together without pretending I was whole”
Shelley Jackson

“Feathers needed, swan preferred.”
Shelley Jackson, My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me: Forty New Fairy Tales
