Corset and corsetting. Jane and Viv. The nervous girls. Stress cadets. They felt it all so intensely on their body. Both married men who grew icy or paralyzed the more feverish and effusive their wives got. (He is cold on the phone. I grow hot. He freezes up.)

Kate Zambrenos Heroines om modernismens psykopatologi og de kollektive sygdomme som blev fostret hos the Bowles, the Eliots og the Fitzgeralds. En oplagt bog for mig at skrive om, men hvor ville jeg blive glædeligt overrasket om en mandlig læser havde noget at sige.
