Ugh. My heart. Growing up in the 90's, I'd only just discovered & fallen in love with Nirvana shortly before Kurt died. It was really jarring. I had to ask my mom what suicide meant. Really enjoyed this book, although I still need to look into th ...more

Well done! By the time I was done with this book I felt like I knew Carrie, and like I'd known about Sleater Kinney from the beginning. In actuality, they were one band I just never liked while growing up in the Seattle sound. Lo and behold, I fell i ...more

“The idea that we can somehow escape affecting each other is deeply conservative. Barbarous, even.”
Lindy West, Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman

Lindy West
“As a woman, my body is scrutinized, policed, and treated as a public commodity. As a fat woman, my body is also lampooned, openly reviled, and associated with moral and intellectual failure. My body limits my job prospects, access to medical care and fair trials, and – the one thing Hollywood movies and Internet trolls most agree on – my ability to be loved. So the subtext, when a thin person asks a fat person, ‘Where do you get your confidence?’ is, ‘You must be some sort of alien because if I looked like you, I would definitely throw myself into the sea.”
Lindy West, Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman

Lindy West
“Denying people access to value is an incredibly insidious form of emotional violence, one that our culture wields aggressively and liberally to keep marginalized groups small and quiet.”
Lindy West, Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman

Carrie Fisher
“If anyone reads this when I have passed to the big bad beyond I shall be posthumorously embarrassed. I shall spend my entire afterlife blushing.”
Carrie Fisher, The Princess Diarist

Lindy West
“Please don’t forget: I am my body. When my body gets smaller, it is still me. When my body gets bigger, it is still me. There is not a thin woman inside me, awaiting excavation. I am one piece.”
Lindy West, Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman
