- Hanif Abdurraqib
“To write is to sell a ticket to escape, not from the truth, but into it.”
- Alexander Chee
“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.”
