I was asked to blurb this book but used the word 'mindfuck' in my blurb which apparently isn't kosher so I'll say it here. A COMPLETE MINDFUCK. Sort of suffocating. Thorough. Dark. As SNP says, "not for everyone, meaning it's for people who take grea ...more

“I always want to feel good and I never want to feel bad. Because of this, I’m experienced in substance abuse issues.”
Chloe Caldwell, Women

“My mother wanted to be Betty Boop. Betty Boop was independent. Betty Boop was sexy. Betty Boop really had her shit together, you know?”
Chloe Caldwell, Legs Get Led Astray

“Eventually it becomes obvious to me that I have stopped living and started killing time.”
Chloe Caldwell, Women

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Things hurt worse before they hurt better.”
Chloe Caldwell, Women

“Why does tragedy exist? Because you are full of rage. Why are you full of rage? Because you are full of grief.”
Anne Carson (Translator), Grief Lessons: Four Plays by Euripides

“If I could go back, I'd coach myself. I'd be the woman who taught me how to stand up, how to want things, how to ask for them. I'd be the woman who says, your mind, your imagination, they are everything. Look how beautiful. You deserve to sit at the table. The radiance falls on all of us.”
Lidia Yuknavitch, The Chronology of Water

“When a woman tells the truth she is creating the possibility for more truth around her.”
Adrienne Rich

“My dad is dead. And as I type this, by the window, on the rainy day, I am alive, yes. I am living. But sometimes it doesn't feel like I am doing it fast enough, or hard enough, or all the way. And it is times like that when I can understand wanting a cigarette in my hand, then my mouth, then my hand again. Holding the cigarette. Tending to the cigarette. Giving the cigarette what it needs. Tapping it in the ashtray. Sucking on it.

Then flicking it in the street, like it meant nothing to me.”
Amy Fusselman
