Negative Space by Lilly Dancyger
"I LOVED this book. Joe's art mixed into the pages was so lovely and Lilly's coverage of her relationship with her father and coming to terms with his addiction was beautifully written. As a child of an addict myself, I appreciated all of the emotiona" Read more of this review »

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

“Everything I've learned from the time I was born is essentially some form of control. Basic lessons: how to control my hands, my body. Advanced lessons: how to control my volume, my appearance. Having control over myself allows me to choose. I can present myself as loudly or as softly, as boldly or as meekly, as wildly or as calmly as you wish.”
Lilly Dancyger, Burn It Down: Women Writing about Anger

“My anger signals the presence of injustice. His tends to flare in the presence of personal insult. Rather than being shameful, my rage is noble.”
Lilly Dancyger, Burn It Down: Women Writing about Anger

“There is too much beauty in being alive to silence my intuition, to ignore my body, to not sing its needs and demand that they be met. As it turns out, my anger has become my savior.”
Lilly Dancyger, Burn It Down: Women Writing about Anger
