I’ve spent my morning and much of my afternoon picking through all the travel sites and blog posts I’ve ever saved about Paris (and her neighbors) and scouting Airbnb and Haven and that one article I saved from the VegNews cheese issue about Paris and emails from friends who have lived/traveled in France and holy shit is this trip coming together!

“If everybody likes you, you’re pretty dull.”

“Novels aren’t better or more impressive than short stories. People—usually people who don’t write fiction, but also self-congratulatory novelists and literary critics—think they are because novels are bigger, and, like children, these people gravitate to the biggest, shiniest objects and assume they’re the most important ones… One of the reasons Saunders is such a good writer is that he listens to his stories and he does right by them. Brevity is challenging, and it keeps you honest. If these novels came to their senses and realized they’re short stories, the right thing happened. They became what they were supposed to be. Who the hell wants to read a novel that is a novel only because the writer felt they needed to write one? Not me. I read novels all the time and think, eh, should have been a short story.”

“My idea of rich is that you can buy every book you ever want without looking at the price and you’re never around assholes. That’s the two things to really fight for in life.”
