Reading is a tactile experience and never more so than in childhood, as our first encounters with covers and spines and illustrations are imprinted on our minds.

From The Millions, a beautiful essay by Alix Ohlin on “the sad, strange brilliance” of Tove Jansson, creator of the beloved Moomin series

But, please, can we stop calling queer women’s lovers and spouses mere “companions”? It does an injustice to the dignity and depth of those relationships. (Especially during LGBT Pride Month.)

Newsflash: Real humans are connected with one another whether they like it or not. They are awkward and dumb and wave their arms around if they get upset enough; real humans all have personal touchstones that are “off the map” because there is no map. We are so maplessly, ridiculously uncool that whole cultures and subcultures, whole personalities even, have been built to hide our ridiculousness from ourselves.

Mary Gaitskill on why judge people for being uncool – an incredibly thoughtful excerpt from the book Let’s Talk About Love: Why Other People Have Such Bad Taste.

Also see Gaitskill on the 6 motives of creativity
