My friend Karina thinks money confessions are the new taboo. So of course if something is taboo I need to write about it.Everything I listbelow, I did without an agent. There was no book advance for Legs Get Led Astray, and there haven’t been royalties for either Legs Get Led Astray or Women. Theonly times i really feel like I “sold out” for my writing was the GRAZIA interview and Men’s Health...

Women by Chloe Caldwell
"So well written. Pulls you in quickly, messes with your head, then leaves you just as fast."
Women by Chloe Caldwell
"There's pretty much nothing wrong with this novella and the few negative reviews on here make me like it even more."
Chloe Caldwell and 4 other people liked Iain's review of Any Other Mouth:
Any Other Mouth by Anneliese Mackintosh
"With sparkling prose, a wry self-deprecating wit and startling honesty Anneliese Mackintosh shows us the many faces of grief. Told roughly chronologically through fractured memories, ironic 'self-help' advice, post-modern reflexivity and often bru..." Read more of this review »

“My mother wanted to be Betty Boop. Betty Boop was independent. Betty Boop was sexy. Betty Boop really had her shit together, you know?”
Chloe Caldwell, Legs Get Led Astray

“I think if you tell someone that you love him or her, (especially a person that once screamed, “I’m not gonna love you ever!”) and that person says “duh,” then I think that means you have done something right.”
Chloe Caldwell, Legs Get Led Astray

“You’ve always called me irreverent. You’ve
branded me irreverent. In my mind you invented irreverent.”

“Things hurt worse before they hurt better.”
Chloe Caldwell, Women

“Why does tragedy exist? Because you are full of rage. Why are you full of rage? Because you are full of grief.”
Anne Carson, Grief Lessons: Four Plays

“If I could go back, I'd coach myself. I'd be the woman who taught me how to stand up, how to want things, how to ask for them. I'd be the woman who says, your mind, your imagination, they are everything. Look how beautiful. You deserve to sit at the table. The radiance falls on all of us.”
Lidia Yuknavitch, The Chronology of Water

“When a woman tells the truth she is creating the possibility for more truth around her.”
Adrienne Rich

“My dad is dead. And as I type this, by the window, on the rainy day, I am alive, yes. I am living. But sometimes it doesn't feel like I am doing it fast enough, or hard enough, or all the way. And it is times like that when I can understand wanting a cigarette in my hand, then my mouth, then my hand again. Holding the cigarette. Tending to the cigarette. Giving the cigarette what it needs. Tapping it in the ashtray. Sucking on it.

Then flicking it in the street, like it meant nothing to me.”
Amy Fusselman
