„Jede Geschichte, die wir über uns erzählen, kann nur in der Vergangenheit erzählt werden. Sie spult sich von dort, wo wir heute stehen, nach rückwärts ab, und wir sind nicht mehr ihre Akteure, sondern ihre Zuschauer, die sich entschieden haben zu sprechen.“ Was ich liebte. Deutsch von Uli Aumüller. Reinbek 2003, ISBN 3-498-02971-1

„Geist und Wissen schützen uns nicht vor den Stürmen des Lebens, das müssen auch meine Figuren erfahren. Lieb gewordene Dinge zu verlieren, ist häufig der Preis für das Experiment, das unser Leben darstellt.“ STERN 5/2003, Seite 142.


„I don't want the words to be naked the way they are in faxes or in the computer. I want them to be covered by an envelope that you have to rip open in order to get at. I want there to be a waiting time -a pause between the writing and the reading. I want us to be careful about what we say to each other. I want the miles between us to be real and long. This will be our law -that we write our dailiness and our suffering very, very carefully.“ What I Loved

„Every sickness has an alien quality, a feeling of invasion and loss of control that is evident in the language we use about it.“ The Shaking Woman, or A History of My Nerves

„Pain is always emotional. Fear and depression keep constant company with chronic hurting.“ The Shaking Woman, or A History of My Nerves

„There is no future without a past, because what is to be cannot be imagined except as a form of repetition.“ The Summer Without Men

„I will turn human anatomy into roses and stars and sea. I will dissect the beloveds body in metaphor.“ The Summer Without Men

„Reading is a private pursuit; one that takes place behind closed doors.“ The Summer Without Men


„That night as I lay in bed, I thought of several things I could have said and mourned the fact that my wit usually bloomed late, peaking when it no longer mattered, during the solitary hours close to midnight.“ The Blindfold

„Some of us are fated to live in a box from which there is only temporary release. We of the damned-up spirits, of the thwarted feelings, of the blocked hearts, and the pent-up thoughts, we who long to blast out, flood forth in a torrent of rage or joy or even madness, but there is nowhere for us to go, nowhere in the world because no one will have us as we are, and there is nothing to do except to embrace the secret pleasures of our sublimations, the arc of a sentence, the kiss of a rhyme, the image that forms on paper or canvas, the inner cantata, the cloistered embroidery, the dark and dreaming needlepoint from hell or heaven or purgatory or none of those three, but there must be some sound and fury from us, some clashing cymbals in the void.“ The Summer Without Men

„Dreams are stories made by and for the dreamer, and each dreamer has his own folds to open and knots to untie.“ The Shaking Woman, or A History of My Nerves

„A book is a collaboration between the one who reads and what is read and, at its best, that coming together is a love story like any other.“ The Summer Without Men


„The truth is that personality inevitably bleeds into all forms of our intellectual life. We all extrapolate from our own lives in order to understand the world.“ The Shaking Woman, or A History of My Nerves

„When I spoke to her, I had the feeling that her thoughts had been nourished in wide-open spaces where talk was sparse and silence ruled.“ What I Loved

„I've always thought of wholeness and integration as necessary myths. We're fragmented beings who cement ourselves together, but there are always cracks. Living with the cracks is part of being, well, reasonably healthy“ The Sorrows of an American

„That is the strangeness of language: it crosses the boundaries of the body, is at once inside and outside, and it sometimes happens that we don't notice the threshold has been crossed.“ The Sorrows of an American
