Edmund White
“For me a current lover has always been like whatever current book I'm writing - an obsessive project orienting all my thoughts.”
Edmund White, Inside a Pearl: My Years in Paris

Edmund White
“I was lucky to live in New York when it was dangerous and edgy and cheap enough to play host to young, penniless artists. That was the era of "coffee shops" as they were defined in New York—cheap restaurants open round the clock where you could eat for less than it would cost to cook at home. That was the era of ripped jeans and dirty T-shirts, when the kind of people who are impressed by material signs of success were not the people you wanted to know.”
Edmund White, City Boy: My Life in New York in the 1960s and 70s

Harvey Fierstein
“I am thinking about how it feels to be a no one in the life of someone you love.”
Harvey Fierstein, Torch Song Trilogy

Vladimir Nabokov
“Years of secret suffering had taught me superhuman self-control.”
Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“I'm not used to being loved. I wouldn't know what to do.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald
