Beautiful, emotionally heavy writing. When I read a 5, I know it almost instantly. And with this story, this language I knew it instantly, throughout, and to the end. The use of first-person POV is intimate, but Danler's honing of that intimacy - bot ...more

A poignant story and a good read, but I'm not sure I would rate it "one of the best." Some of the techniques used could be considered "experimental," but since I've seen them used more radically in other literary works the use of them in this particu ...more

Sherman Alexie
“He loved her, of course, but better than that, he chose her, day after day. Choice: that was the thing.”
Sherman Alexie, The Toughest Indian in the World

Anaïs Nin
“I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naïve or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman.”
Anaïs Nin

Anaïs Nin
“How wrong is it for a woman to expect the man to build the world she wants, rather than to create it herself?”
Anaïs Nin

Franklin D. Roosevelt
“Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Janet Fitch
“
Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space. An intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you'll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way.”
Janet Fitch, White Oleander
