Anne Fadiman
printer friendly version
I have always felt that the action most worth watching is not at
the center of things but where edges meet. I like shorelines,
weather fronts, international borders. There are interesting
frictions and incongruities in these places, and often, if you stand
at the point of tangency, you can see both sides better than if
you were in the middle of either one. This is especially true, I think,
when the apposition is cultural.

(from Preface to "The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down.")
