Book cover for Knit One, Girl Two
"I am so gay," she whispered to herself happily. It was just your ordinary classical nude, probably a Muse or something, but it was curvy and well-made and it put a smile on her face.
Luis Alberto Urrea
“When you died, you died in small doses. You had trouble speaking. You forgot who was beside you. You were suddenly furious and in a panic of outrage. You wished you could be saintly. You wished you weren't so weak. You suddenly felt better and fooled yourself into believing that a miracle was about to happen. Well, wasn't that all a dirty rotten thing to pull on somebody.”
Luis Alberto Urrea, The House of Broken Angels

Meenakshi Gigi Durham
“In the realm of love and sex, it’s girls who are in the position of working hard to adapt themselves to the needs and fantasies of the mercurial males whose approval and attention they seek.”
M. Gigi Durham, The Lolita Effect: The Media Sexualization of Young Girls and What We Can Do About It

Peter    Cameron
“It seemed that everyone else could mate, could fit their parts together in pleasant and productive ways, but that some almost indistinguishable difference in my anatomy and psyche set me slightly, yet irrevocably, apart.”
Peter Cameron, Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You

Albert Camus
“O light! This is the cry of all the characters of ancient drama brought face to face with their fate. This last resort was ours, too, and I knew it now. In the middle of winter I at last discovered that there was in me an invincible summer.”
Albert Camus, L’été

Peter    Cameron
“I always looked forward to being an adult, because I thought the adult world was, well—adult. That adults weren’t cliquey or nasty, that the whole notion of being cool, or in, or popular would case to be the arbiter of all things social, but I was beginning to realize that the adult world was as nonsensically brutal and socially perilous as the kingdom of childhood.”
Peter Cameron, Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You
