My takeaway from this (smart, compelling, well-structured) book is that we are all fucked.

“Last night when you called I told you
I was happy, which was true, but thinking ahead

I could be unhappy, too, if that’s what you
wanted. I could be any of a lot of things:
a wrist, a ghost, a harbor, a rope. I could

be the one who doesn’t know the language.
I could be the reason they take you first.
I could be the last person to see you alive.”
Leigh Stein

“You could fill a catalog with all you long for - for him to come back, for a do-over, for a different ending in which not only were you strong and said good-bye but he lived and made a success of his life and decades later you could look back together on your twenties and laugh at all your follies, for his voice on the other end of the phone call, for one more of those Albuquerque nights when it was easy to fall asleep knowing he was just in the next room.”
Leigh Stein, Land of Enchantment

“looking back at me is a woman holding8

a movie based on a book based on her life
and she wonders if the woman she sees
wants to die as much as she does.”
Leigh Stein
