Read as part of a Foster-Wallacian challenge to explore the merits of hot garbage. Learned much less about monsters and much more about how women see themselves in pop culture.

Saul Bellow
“Ninety per cent of life is a nightmare, do you think I am going to get it rounded up to hundred per cent?”
Saul Bellow, Humboldt's Gift

Elie Wiesel
“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.”
Elie Wiesel

David Foster Wallace
“What passes for hip cynical transcendence of sentiment is really some kind of fear of being really human, since to be really human [...] is probably to be unavoidably sentimental and naïve and goo-prone and generally pathetic.”
David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

Donald Barthelme
“But have you noticed the slight curl at the end of Sam II's mouth, when he looks at you? It means that he didn't want you to name him Sam II, for one thing, and for two other things it means that he has a sawed-off in his left pants leg, and a baling hook in his right pants leg, and is ready to kill you with either of them, given the opportunity. The father is taken aback. What he usually says, in such a confrontation, is "I changed your diapers for you, little snot." This is not the right thing to say. First, it is not true (mothers change nine diapers out of ten), and second it reminds Sam II of what he is mad about. He is mad about being small when you were big, but no, that's not it, he is mad about being helpless when you were powerful, but no, not that either, he is mad about being contingent when you were necessary, not quite it, he is insane because when he loved you, you didn't notice.”
Donald Barthelme, The Dead Father

James Baldwin
“Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.”
James Baldwin
