Dept. of Speculation by Jenny Offill
“The baby’s eyes were dark, almost black, and when I nursed her in the middle of the night, she’d stare at me with a stunned, shipwrecked look as if my body were the island she’d washed up on.”
Jenny Offill
Dept. of Speculation by Jenny Offill
“But my agent has a theory. She says every marriage is jerry-rigged. Even the ones that look reasonable from the outside are held together inside with chewing gum and wire and string.”

Jenny Offill, Dept. of Speculation

“There is a picture of my mother holding me as a baby, a look of naked love on her face. For years, it embarrassed me. Now there is a picture of me with my daughter looking exactly the same way.”
Jenny Offill, Dept. of Speculation

“Because when some incident sheds a favorable light on an old and absent friend, that's about as good a gift as chance intends to offer.”
