“The biographies of the great men see their excesses as signs of their greatness. But Jean Rhys, in her biography, is read as borderline; Anaïs Nin is borderline; Djuna is borderline; etc. etc. Borderline personality disorder being an overwhelmingly gendered diagnosis. I write in Heroines: “The charges of borderline personality disorder are the same charges against girls writing literature, I realize—too emotional, too impulsive, no boundaries.”

“I think so often, especially if the work is perceived of as being drawn from life, the woman, not her book, is reviewed.”
Kate Zambreno

“Sometimes she is struck by how much she goes through life almost unconsciously. She is being swept along. She is a pale ghost.”
