"No matter how brilliant or accomplished they are, there is something emasculating for men in being pitted against a woman. It is even more true in creative fields already considered to be "squishy" and feminine, and it's a big problem because great women have been left off the record."
"Being a mother is complicated because its not just a paternal culture making demands on you; its those internal demands and expectations that women have and are self-generated."
"I will turn human anatomy into roses and stars and sea. I will dissect the beloveds body in metaphor."
"Not telling is just as interesting as telling I have found. Why speech, that short verbal journey from inside to outside can be excrutiating under certain circumstances is fascinating."
"Great books are the ones that are urgent, life-changing, the ones that crack open the reader’s skull and heart."
"There is no future without a past, because what is to be cannot be imagined except as a form of repetition."
