Book cover for Stockton to Malone: The Rise of the Utah Jazz
“Everybody talks about the superstar status,” Malone says. “I don’t know how they’re supposed to act. That’s not how I was brought up. If we were horses’ behinds, there’d be total chaos in this locker room.
N.K. Jemisin
“Let's start with the end of the world, why don't we? Get it over with and move on to more interesting things.”
N.K. Jemisin, The Fifth Season

Zadie Smith
“Most of the cruelty in the world is just misplaced energy.”
Zadie Smith, On Beauty

Stephen J. Burn
“Stepping aside from the culture of opinion, delving deeper into open-minded analysis, critics might fulfill their most important function: locating major works that are not always visible in mainstream networks.”
Stephen J. Burn

“I don't believe you. You're a liar. Play it fucking loud!”
Bob Dylan

Maggie Nelson
“While the two words often arrive sutured together, I think it worthwhile to breathe some space between them, so that one might see “brutal honesty” not as a more forceful version of honesty itself, but as one possible use of honesty. One that doesn’t necessarily lay truth barer by dint of force, but that actually overlays something on top of it—something that can get in its way. That something is cruelty.”
Maggie Nelson, The Art of Cruelty: A Reckoning
