“To own beauty is the first lie of it.”
Chris Campanioni, In Conversation

“I couldn’t decide whether it was better to be the art, or the artist.”
Chris Campanioni, Going Down

“The mist after rain, uninterrupted rainfall on rooftops, pitter-patter intellect. The thoughts I leave behind like footsteps.”
Chris Campanioni, In Conversation

“Always being myself and my salve, which is life. I’m not lonely, if that’s what it seems like. Always writing things down.”
Chris Campanioni

“I couldn’t decide whether it was better to be the art, or the artist.”
Chris Campanioni, Going Down

“I wrote a trilogy out of order and then rearranged it, because the whole of life is like that--a cut-up--and when you cut into the present, the future leaks out.”
Chris Campanioni

“What good is a writer if he can’t destroy literature? And us ... what good are we if we don’t help as much as we can in that destruction?”
Julio Cortázar, Hopscotch

“The whole world had become a stage, in which the props were continually shifting, four extras reprising the roles of twenty-four characters and people I’d never seen before playing my most beloved ones.”
