Friends, acquaintances, teachers, coaches, and even the occasional stranger would ask, “What are you?” or “Where are you from?”


I understand that (in most cases) there were no ill-intentions. They were simply curio...

“Sometimes I feel like growing up is slowly peeling back these layers of lies.”
Randy Ribay, Patron Saints of Nothing

“That's not how stories work, is it? They are shifting things that re-form with each new telling, transform with each new teller. Less solid, and more liquid taking the shape of its container.”
Randy Ribay, Patron Saints of Nothing

“I expected the truth to illuminate, to resurrect. Not to ruin.”
Randy Ribay, Patron Saints of Nothing

Ultimate Popsugar...: 35 - A book by an author whose first and last names start with the same letter 130 2832 Jul 03, 2019 05:55PM  
“Reading is like thinking, like praying, like talking to a friend, like expressing your ideas, like listening to other people's ideas, like listening to music, like looking at the view, like taking a walk on the beach.”
Roberto Bolaño, 2666

“Closing your eyes isn't going to change anything. Nothing's going to disappear just because you can't see what's going on. In fact, things will even be worse the next time you open your eyes. That's the kind of world we live in. Keep your eyes wide open. Only a coward closes his eyes. Closing your eyes and plugging up your ears won't make time stand still.”
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
