What We Are Talking About When We Talk About Her Face

Whether Her face is the visage a famous actress or belongs to a friend you grew up who has had the temerity of suddenly looking younger than you, the semiotic study of the faces of women is one of our favorite national pastimes.

Annabelle Gurwitch Annabelle Gurwitch said: " This book was so delicious, I liken it to eating a thick cut steak- cooked black and blue- it's crusty on the outside and juicy on the inside. It's also a dark satire of reality tv shows- a genre I loathe and I think is the bell weather of the apocal ...more "

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

“When I was twelve, my sixth-grade English class went on a field trip to see Franco Zeffirelli’s film adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. From that moment forward I dreamed that someday I’d meet my own Juliet. I’d marry her and I would love her with the same passion and intensity as Romeo. The fact
that their marriage lasted fewer than three days before they both were dead
didn’t seem to affect my fantasy. Even if they had lived, I don’t think their
relationship could have survived. Let’s face it, being that emotionally aflame, sexually charged, and transcendentally eloquent every single second can really start to grate on a person’s nerves. However, if I could find someone to love just a fraction of the way that Montague loved his Capulet, then marrying her would be worth it.”

“Kissing is a means of getting two people so close together that they can’t see anything wrong with each other.” —RENE YASENEK”
Annabelle Gurwitch, You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up: A Love Story

“It's also at that moment that I realize I am able to maintain the level of judgmentalness that I so cherish only because I have someone in my life who knows me so well and still manages to love me. Isn't that what love is? Knowing someone's life story and not using it against them? OK, maybe it's more like knowing someone's life story, using it against them, and still loving them.”
