Quote of the Day: Jenny Diski

Maybe in the end I’m so narcissistic that I prefer my own lack of belonging. That’s where I belong: my own exclusive club.

— Jenny Diski, in a 2002 interview, quoted in a review of her last book, In Gratitude, in The New York Review of Books, 29 September 2016

The reviewer, Hermione Lee, goes on to say about Diski:

She does not suffer fools or mince words. She is attracted to inertia and solitude and has a tendency to stay put, hide under the covers, obliterate herself. At the same time she wants to travel, explore, ask questions, and take on challenging subjects. She wants to be entirely herself, and hates the idea of being shoehorned into a preexisting script.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
