I'm just a huge Claire Messud fan. Love her lyricism, emotionality, acute perception, social and political relevance. This book is no exception.

“. . . when it comes down to it, that’s what life is all about: showing up for the people you love, again and again, until you can’t show up anymore.”
Rebecca Walker, Baby Love: Choosing Motherhood After a Lifetime of Ambivalence

“Sex can look like love if you don't know what love looks like.”
Rebecca Walker

“It seems to me, that this, too, is how memory works. What we remember of what was done to us shapes our view, molds us, sets our stance. But what we remember is past, it no longer exists, and yet we hold on to it, live by it, surrender so much control to it. What do we become when we put down the scripts written by history and memory, when each person before us can be seen free of the cultural or personal narrative we've inherited or devised?
When we, ourselves, can taste that freedom.”
Rebecca Walker
