“Longed for him. Got him. Shit.” Margaret Atwood (via vintageanchorbooks)

“If you can love someone with your whole heart, even one person, then there’s salvation in life. Even if you can’t get together with that person” Haruki Murakami, IQ84 (via vintageanchorbooks)

“When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’

It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?”

Karen Russell Talks Vampires in the Lemon Grove with Full Stop
One of the first stories I wrote for this new collection was “The Barn at the End of Our Term,” and I remember desperately wanting to write a story that was not from the point of view of an adolescent boy, because it had felt like that was exclusively what I had been doing. So that was a giant overcorrection, because it’s from the perspective of horses. And likewise with the vampire story [“Vampires in the Lemon Grove”] I was like “I want to write an adult love story, I’ve never tried that.” And again, it just came out kind of funky. Basically in every case with the new one there would be ways that I wanted to stretch, either geographically or to try an adult narrator.
