Last Night at the Ritz, The by Elizabeth Savage
"“It is very dangerous to get caught without something to read.” So says our very gin soaked narrator who you can either trust or not, she won't care. She is beyond caring. By the time you have decided in this slim novel that maybe you don't really..." Read more of this review »
Last Night at the Ritz by Elizabeth Savage
"I have no idea how to explain this book. It’s about everything and nothing. A woman and her friends go out for drinks and dinner and through flashbacks we learn about her life.

Sounds boring put that way, but it wasn’t! I liked this woman very muc..." Read more of this review »
Last Night at the Ritz, The by Elizabeth Savage
"I really loved this. It practically zings with great lines and sly, perfectly formed observations about women's inner lives. It concerns two young women who met in college in the 60s and where life and love takes them. It delves into subjects like..." Read more of this review »

“To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.”
Pema Chödrön

Susie Bright
“What's so wonderful about experiments is that often they don't work. They do blow up in the oven; the Bride of Frankenstein does crawl out and strangle you with a black leotard while you shout your last prayers. It's only once you've tasted your own shocking failures, harebrained ideas, and sudden departures that you will realize something quite wonderful.”
Susie Bright, How to Write a Dirty Story: Reading, Writing, and Publishing Erotica

Tony Kushner
“Fabulous. If you possess it, you don’t need to ask what it is. When you attempt to delineate it, you move away from it. Fabulous is one of those words that provide a measure of the degree to which a person or event manifests a particular oppressed subculture’s most distinctive, invigorating features. What are the salient features of fabulousness? Irony. Tragic History. Defiance. Gender-fuck. Glitter. Drama. It is not butch. It is not hot. The cathexis surrounding fabulousness is not necessarily erotic. The fabulous is not delineated by age or beauty. It is raw materials reworked into illusion. To be truly fabulous, one must completely triumph over tragedy, age, and physical insufficiencies. The fabulous is the rapturous embrace of difference, the discovering of self not in that which has rejected you but in that which makes you unlike, the dislike, the other.”
Tony Kushner

Pema Chödrön
“Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructible be found in us.”
