Zadie Smith
“[He] looked troubled, for he had strayed too far from small talk right to the center of things--it happened more and more these days--and now must try to return to the things that didn't matter.”
Zadie Smith, NW

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
“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

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