Zipped and zapped all over the place. You'd have to be a monster not to shed a tear when they destroyed the Rainbow Bridge.

Sweetness by Torgny Lindgren
" Stranger than strange. Someone told me he was thinking of the Berlin Wall writing it. Love his way to make Sweden a strange and exotic place. I listen to his books, he reads them himself in swedish, and he is so so good. "

Desolate and precisely told. Works like a fairy tale in that nothing feels out of place. Michael Haneke movie vibes. Story is about a lady writer who comes to deliver a lecture in a tiny tiny town in northern Sweden, and ends up living with a man who...more

Grace Paley
“The only thing you should have to do is find work you love to do. And I can't imagine living without having loved a person. A man, in my case. It could be a woman, but whatever. I think, what I always tell kids when they get out of class and ask, 'What should I do now?' I always say, 'Keep a low overhead. You're not going to make a lot of money.' And the next thing I say: 'Don't live with a person who doesn't respect your work.' That's the most important thing—that's more important than the money thing. I think those two things are very valuable pieces of information.”

John Cheever
“Then it is dark; it is a night where kings in golden suits ride elephants over the mountains.”
John Cheever, The Stories of John Cheever

“I like the freedom that comes with lowered expectations.”
Phillip Lopate

Gilbert Sorrentino
“It is no wonder lesbians love women.”
Gilbert Sorrentino, The Moon in Its Flight

Herman Melville
“Take almost any path you please, and ten to one it carries you down in a dale, and leaves you there by a pool in the stream. There is magic in it. Let the most absent-minded of men be plunged in his deepest reveries--stand that man on his legs, set his feet a-going, and he will infallibly lead you to water, if water there be in all that region. Should you ever be athirst in the great American desert, try this experiment, if your caravan happen to be supplied with a metaphysical professor. Yes, as every one knows, meditation and water are wedded for ever.”
Herman Melville, Moby Dick
