Irmgard Keun
“Father thou art in heaven, please make my inside so good and so fine that he can love me. I'm going to buy him a tie, because that's something I can do. Someone once told me that I have an almost masculine understanding of it. i guess there are situations where having a past is to your advantage. Heavenly Father, perform a miracle and give me an education--I can do the rest myself with make-up.”
Irmgard Keun, The Artificial Silk Girl

“Artists are people driven by the tension between the desire to communicate and the desire to hide.”
Donald Woods Winnicott

D.T. Max, Every Love Story Is a Ghost Story: A Life of David Foster Wallace

Haruki Murakami
“If you remember me, then I don't care if everyone else forgets.”
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
