What attracted me most about this book, when I saw it on Netgalley, was the simple but charming orange font. And the title was so unusually long, it has to have a great meaning, right? Well as it happens, this is one of those books that have a much greater content than what its title implied.
The truth is that when I found out yesterday that my mother had left me,I realized that I would leave the world.I decided that the world had lost its best asset and I stopped believing in it, because nobody had held on to her; the world didn’t stop or even seem shocked by its loss.
I burst into tears. I love that expression. You don’t say someone has burst into a meal or burst into a walk. You burst into tears or into laughter. I think it’s worth bursting into pieces for those feelings.
Just like you laugh at somebody’s joke and you accept that their words make you happy, you shouldn’t fear telling someone that their skin, their eyes, their mouth make you feel something else. We have to decriminalize sexual acts, bring them into real life, everyday life, and tie them to life instead of sex.
