it was amazing

it turns out that every culture has a great creepy folktale about how, if you give up on your art or become ungenerous, you shrivel up and turn into a rotten fascist prune.

this is one of the best books I've ever read and has changed my life, and is smart as hell, even though the cover has an embarrassing little pink heart on it. IGNORE THE EMBARRASSING PINK HEART AND FORGE AHEAD. or risk becoming a rotten fascist prune, you know, it's your choice
