“De är på väg in i framtiden. Och det finns ingenting för mig att hämta där.”
Sara Stridsberg, Beckomberga: Ode till min familj

“Jag har den ljusblåa klänningen med vita prickar. Jag målar läpparna sårröda. Jag är tretton år. Jag är fjorton år. Jag är femton. Jag är bara en liten skiss till en människa.”
Sara Stridsberg, Darling River

“Alldeles innan allt slocknar finns ingen rädsla, bara ett svagt ljus som flackar vid gränsen av medvetandet. Om det inte längre finns någon tid kan det inte längre finnas någon oro. Om rummet har upphört finns det ingenting att vara rädd för. Det är en sorts paradis, Jackie. Det är det paradis som erbjuds.”
Sara Stridsberg
