after betty

"I've always felt the gap between words and things, the impossibility of articulating what's really out there in the world, the strangeness of naming everything, including the self, how completely arbitrary it all is, and yet, at the same time, how it determines identities."
Siri Hustvedt in conversation with Thisbe Nissen
Believer Book of Writers Talking to Writers
