“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

“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

“[Brodsky] loved cats, and sometimes for a greeting would meow.”
Sigrid Nunez, Sempre Susan: A Memoir of Susan Sontag
