“Being with you is as good as being alone.”
Abbi Waxman, The Bookish Life of Nina Hill

“People were... exhausting. They made her anxious. Leaving her apartment every morning was the turning over of a giant hourglass, the mental energy she’d stored up overnight eroding grain by grain.

Abbi Waxman, The Bookish Life of Nina Hill

Abbi Waxman, The Bookish Life of Nina Hill
