I’m listening to Haze, this adorable techno DJ who was classically trained as a Jazz musician, and re-reading Arabesques, a badass novel. The novel is teeming with its own inventive and beautiful prose, and is peppered with gems of epigraphs, such as this gorgeous Walter Abish quote:

…[W]riters are not terribly reliable as witnesses for either the defense or the prosecution. They are also not to be relied upon as lovers. They lack patience. They seem to have certain difficulty taking pleasure from what they are doing. Like chess players, they are inwardly preparing themsleves for the inevitable end game.
–From How German Is It, which is also badass.
