Coming soon…a new Steve Roggenbuck book to love
Gabby Bess’s Alone With Other People orchestrates an impressive catalog of young human want with a uncompromising style. In the span between its first phrase The sex can be rough and its last sentence, Panic., the reader forward through a virtual rolodex of self-inquisition shaped by boredom, horror, aspiration, fear for future, wonder, lust. There’s a lot of intense light coming off this book full of screens and suns and large black dots. — Blake Butler re Alone With Other People (via seemstween)

Hobart :: You Want To Be With People And You Want To Be Alone: Matthew Savoca Interviewed By Sam Moss -
“It’s hard, right? You want to be with people and you want to be alone. It’s easy to be alone, but it’s fun to be with people. Bathrooms are the greatest places because you can go there and be alone, because you’re supposed to be alone there, so no one thinks it’s weird that you are going off by yourself for five minutes. If you just walk off to an empty part of a room people are like Why is that guy just over there by himself? But if you say I’m going to the bathroom, people respect that. Everyone loves the bathroom. I go there often and just sit down and do nothing. Just for a few minutes. It’s hard to do nothing in other places. But doing nothing is one of the best things you can do in this world.”
- Matthew Savoca explaining why he’s such a fun popular guy at parties.
