A contemporary, more thoughtful collection of pieces comparable to Foucault and RD Laing. Loving it.

Currently reading / currently loving. Laing combines modern psychoanalytic theories on schizophrenia with existentialism, including comparisons with Sartre, Kafka, and Beckett.

I'm Afraid of Men | Vivek Shraya
post image

New books by powerful new voices. Already sunk my brain into “I‘m Afraid of Men” and, after letting that digest a bit, am looking forward to the next. Essential reading for everyone.

M Train | Patti Smith

“Such things that disappear in time that we find ourselves longing to see again. We search for them in close-ups, as we search for our hands in a dream.” —Patti Smith

Walk Through Walls: A Memoir | Marina Abramovic
post image

“...the process was more important than the result, just as the performance means more to me than the object. I saw the process of making it and then the process of its unmaking. There was no duration or stability to it. It was pure process.” —Marina Abramovic

On Photography | Susan Sontag
post image

“Photographed images do not seem to be statements about the world so much as pieces of it, miniatures of reality that anyone can make or acquire. ... The picture may distort but there is always a presumption that something exists, or did exist.” -Susan Sontag

Cool for You | Eileen Myles
post image
Pickpick

My first Eileen Myles book, picked up at my favourite bookstore in LES Manhattan (Bluestockings). Eileen Myles‘ voice is both elegant and raw, mucky and sweet, a hard candy soaked in salt. I can‘t wait to dive deeper into her work.

Hallucinations | Oliver Sacks
post image

Have you ever, when believing yourself to be completely awake, had a vivid impression of seeing or being touched by a living being or inanimate object, or of hearing a voice, which impression, as far as you could discover, was not due to an external physical cause?

Adieux: a farewell to Sartre | Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre
post image

So excited I found a copy of this book.

A Very Easy Death | Simone de Beauvoir
post image

She lived against herself. She had appetites in plenty: she spent all her strength in repressing them and she underwent this denial in anger. In her childhood her body, her heart and her mind had been squeezed into an armour of principles and prohibitions. She had been taught to pull the laces hard and tight herself. A full-blooded, spirited woman lived on inside her, but a stranger to herself, deformed and mutilated.

And yet I did not despair of seeing the light tremble, some day, through the still boughs, the strange light of the plain, its pale wild eddies, through the bronze-still boughs, which no breath ever stirred.

Vegan brunch with Beckett, where the days did not run gently up and down, no, not gently. Perhaps things have changed since.

The road, hard and white, seared the tender pastures, rose and fell at the whim of hills and hollows.

Age of Reason | Jean-Paul Sartre
post image

"My life." It hemmed him in. It was a singular entity, without beginning or end, and yet not infinite... it had, like natural objects, a vague and hesitant purpose, a kind of insistent futility, a smell of dust and violets.

Age of Reason | Jean-Paul Sartre

Perhaps it's inevitable; perhaps one has to choose between being nothing at all and impersonating what one is. That would be terrible, it would mean that we were naturally bogus.

No Exit: A Play in One Act | Jean-Paul Sartre

I'll start off the @bookriot #riotgrams challenge on Day 5, because why not. I have two bookish tattoos, both influenced by Jean-Paul Sartre. This one is "L'enfer, c'est les autres" (Hell is other people).
