“Theres Margaret and Marjorie and Dorothy and Nan,
A Daphne and a Mary who live in privacy;
Ones had her fill of lovers, anothers had but one,
Another boasts, I pick and choose and have but two or three.
If head and limb have beauty and the insteps high and light
They can spread out what sail they please for all I have to say....”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
“... fiction never exceeds the reach of the writers courage.”
—Dorothy Allison (b. 1949)
