THE LITTLE PRINCESS. OF COURSE.
He buys her all sorts of absurd toys, and he leaves. He never writes, and then dies and left her NOTHING. And the DOLL, he didn't even pay for the DOLL. I never saw it. OF COURSE.

On Carrie Got a Bad Rap: Beloved Literary Kids with Deadbeat or Absent Dads

@wharrgarbl When he goes through the fragments of her letters after her death, there's one sending Lo to a very very strict boarding school with notes on how terrible she is, and one to Humbert "Maybe in a year's time, my love."

I like how -on the 'the city' one, there's a ring of blue around Minneapolis/St. Paul indicating that New York is not "the city", and then Minneapolis/St. Paul is red indicating that New York is "the city".

On Marriage, 2013

@Jolie Kerr And then they didn't have opinions when you asked, but two months later they FIND opinions, and now they're super important.

I totally went backpacking for the last two weeks before our wedding. In a place with no cell reception. Best decision.
