It starts in her stomach. It always starts in her stomach, a growing, black clump of tar. She tries to think positive thoughts: The salmon will be great to barbecue. Maybe they can take a dip by the rocks and rinse away all this ice-cold water. It's just impossible to be happy about all the pleasant little amusements they try to think up. There's something fundamental that's missing, something she can't put her finger on. It's like they're always pouring more multicolored sprinkles on top of melting ice cream.

I need you more than I love you and I love you to bits

Instead of getting to know characters, I got to know small disjointed glimpses into a couple’s experience with human existence: the way she eats her breakfast in the morning, the sound of his dad’s laugh, a tour of the town they live in, the progression of a love, and its eventual end.

“It’s impossible to understand how two people who love each other so much can hurt each other so much. ‘Why can’t everything just be the way it usually is?’ she cries. ‘I don’t know,’ he answers. ‘It just can’t anymore.’”

“There should be something between people, a table where you put a part of yourself and discuss it from the outside.”
“I don’t need a table like that.”
“How will I know who I am then?”

“I escape into you and you escape into me. But we can’t just trade places. I want you to still be in there when I enter you, otherwise I’ll drown.”

“In the beginning, being alone is always a choice. Then it’s not a choice anymore. When did it stop being a choice? What is it in me that stopped choosing you, that moved into you instead so that I have to be with you in order to be with myself?”

“The darkness comes, the way it usually comes. The light is sucked out, leaving a vacuum. He blinks and feels the warmth like a kind of cold.”

I love that they acknowledge the folds of her stomach so casually. She’s simply allowed to exist as she is.

“Dad is bipolar. That means that he gets a rune tattooed on his right arm when he goes to Iceland; that he takes up smoking when he’s forty-seven; that sometimes he leaves an enormous tip when he eats out; that he laughs louder than other people and cries more quietly. But most of the time it doesn’t mean anything.”

“Where’d you learn to kiss like that?” She tilts her head and looks down at the cuticles.
“Like what?”
“Like how you do.”
“I learned it from another girl.”
“Ah... Pity. I thought you taught yourself on your hand.”

How do you know when it’s over?
Tumblr media

After looking for this book forever, I somehow snagged it for a reasonable price. Written in short prose passages, this book is unique to anything I’ve ever read to date. I see it quoted on tumblr all the time, but I mostly only come across the one pictured above. My hope is that there’s more where that came from and I’m in for an adorable insightful read.
