“It's not up to me to say what's more important, I just write books, but it’s about how these things are enabling. How can a book be a thing that’s got the tools in it, where you don’t need (in the American context) $100,000 worth of graduate school education just ...Read More
"I hate porn". To begin with: there are different types of porn. There are types of porn that piss me off - the same type Emma Lindsay is talking about on the article, and some others - but there's also a whole world of interesting porn out there.

"Jia Tolentino writes about punch-me-in-the-face discourse on Twitter, celebrity stans, and the trend toward the half-ironic millennial death wish."
Natasha Stagg for Affidavit “My coworker and I were sitting in a park in SoHo, eating lunch on our break. “Should I be offended that this guy asked me to get him onto the Shitty Media Men list?” she asked."

A beautiful brief biographical piece: ... and on On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous: ‘The book has a poetic density that is at once elliptical and unflinching in its gaze, a testimony to the endlessly complicated dynamics of damage. “Sometimes being offered tenderness,” writes Vuong, “feels like the very proof that ...Read More
