Zadie Smith
“Time is compressing for the mother, she has a short distance left to go. She means to squeeze the past into a thing small enough to take with her. It's the daughter's job to listen. She's no good at it.”
Zadie Smith, NW

Jami Attenberg
“I'm certain there's something passive-aggressive going on here, but I can't get in touch with my feelings right now, or maybe I'm having several feelings at once and it's too noisy to hear the high notes.”
Jami Attenberg, All Grown Up

Zadie Smith
“At her back a Madonna, fashioned of jet limewood. The Madonna holds a mammoth baby in swaddling clothes. The Christ Child it says on the sign, his arms stretched out at either side, his hands big with blessing it says on the sign, but to Leah there seems no blessing in it. It looks more like accusation. The baby is cruciform; he is the shape of the thing that will destroy him. He reaches out for Leah. He reaches out to stop any escape, to the right or to the left.”
Zadie Smith, NW

Zadie Smith
“I want to stay still and to keep moving. I want this life and another. Don't look for me!”
Zadie Smith, NW

Jami Attenberg
“Girl, where you at," he texts me whenever he likes. And sometimes I am at work and sometimes I am walking out of yoga class and sometimes I am on a date and sometimes I am at a museum feeling nostalgic for my failed past as an artist and sometimes I am with a friend eating a big, delicious, expensive dinner and sometimes I am walking on the waterfront ducking European tourists asking directions and sometimes I am sitting on a park bench in the sunshine reading the paper and sometimes I am at home and it is a Sunday night and I am drinking a bottle of wine by myself, alone but not lonely, but definitely alone. And wherever I am, I text him back right away. Because I want him to know. Where I am at.”
Jami Attenberg, All Grown Up
