About People and Writing

"Everybody is identical in their secret unspoken belief that way deep down they are different from everyone else."
― David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

"That's why most writing now, if you read it they go on one two three four and tell you what happened like newspaper accounts, no adjectives, no long sentences, no tricks they pretend, and they finally believe that they really believe that the way they saw it is the way it is ... it never takes your breath away, telling you things you already know, laying everything out flat, as though the terms and the time, and the nature and the movement of everything were secrets of the same magnitude. They write for people who read with the surface of their minds, people with reading habits that make the smallest demands on them, people brought up reading for facts, who know what's going to come next and want to know what's coming next, and get angry at surprises. Clarity's essential, and detail, no fake mysticism, the facts are bad enough."
— William Gaddis, The Recognitions

"Why should things be easy to understand?"
— Thomas Pynchon

Sunflower Girl by Whirlymerle reviews
Her mother had advised her to catch a cab and not to worry about the cost, because Lanie's a Wall Street Professional now and should look and act the part. Then her mother told her to stay safe and avoid getting into cars whose drivers look like they could be kidnappers, murderers, rapists, or racists, who presumably also look and act the part. She takes the bus. Removed.
