“Here are more lines from The Great Gatsby. I liked to walk up Fifth Avenue and pick out romantic women from the crowd and imagine that in a few minutes I was going to enter into their lives, and no one would ever know or disapprove.

I like to remember when I was one of them, or to pretend that I am one of them still, sensing that restless man at my back and half turning, no, turning all the way, open-armed, saying, Pick me, pick me.”
Sigrid Nunez, The Last of Her Kind

“There is nothing more boring for an intelligent woman than to spend endless amounts of time with small children. (quoting Doris Lessing)”
Sigrid Nunez, Selfish, Shallow, and Self-Absorbed: Sixteen Writers on Their Decision Not To Have Kids

“Are you a political prisoner, Dooley?"
Her blue eyes, immense now in her gaunt face, turned a pitying gaze on the reporter who'd asked her this. "Yes," she said. "And so are you.”
Sigrid Nunez, The Last of Her Kind
