"I think about you. But I don’t say it anymore."
Marguerite Duras, Hiroshima, Mon Amour (1959)
"Fetishizing ‘power’ in women characters – having them kicking ass and always being ready with a putdown - isn’t the same as writing them as human beings."
"Suddenly, it’s not a book anymore. It’s your soul being reflected back to you on the turning pages."
