This book will stay with me forever. Brutal and touching, Dunn has peeled back the lid and revealed the potted meat that was a bleak childhood. Absolutely haunting.

Anaïs Nin
“Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”
Anaïs Nin, Incest: From a Journal of Love

Eileen Myles
“But if I paid attention, really paid attention maybe I could ignore the mountain of sadness and she might entertain and distract me and I would think this is life. The romance and the sadness. I am in it now. I did do that which is what happened.”
Eileen Myles, Inferno

Anne Sexton
“Live or die, but don't poison everything.”
Anne Sexton

Eileen Myles
“The poet’s life is just so much crenellated waste, nights and days whipping swiftly or laboriously past the cinematic window. We’re hunched and weaving over the keys of our green our grey or pink blue manual typewriter maybe a darker stone cold thoritative selectric with its orgasmic expectant hum and us popping pills and laughing over what you or I just wrote, wondering if that line means insult or sex. Or both. Usually both.”
Eileen Myles, Inferno

Virginia Woolf
“As a woman I have no country. As a woman I want no country. As a woman, my country is the whole world.”
Virginia Woolf
