Quotes by Andrea Lawlor  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“When women cover songs by men, they don’t swap the pronouns. Is this a.) a lack of anxiety about convention, b.) a biologically essential fluidity native to humans with vaginas and/or two X chromosomes, c.) rampant queerness among women singers, or d.) the universal male default?”
Andrea Lawlor, Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl

“Paul liked to pick out the secretly cool people, people too cool to flash their coolness. The cool people were not always or even usually the same as the shiny people. Often someone shiny was too conventionally good-looking to be cool but they were still compelling, in terms of sheer wattage. Paul knew he wasn't good-looking enough to be shiny, but he could be cool in certain contexts. Cool was relational and conceptual; cool took work, cool was a meritocracy which, with all its flaws, he still preferred to the aristocracy of genetics.”
Andrea Lawlor, Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl

“Pretty girl privilege, he thought. He'd heard of it and tonight he was going to test it out.”
Andrea Lawlor, Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl
