#sexandrage [belletrist july book of the month] author #evebabitz playing chess with #duchamp in 1963 📸 by julian wasser for @time as eve's revenge against a married lover who had not invited her to duchamp's recent opening.
"as a young girl growing up in los angeles, I spent a lot of time & energy trying to figure out who I was. i think this is true for young women growing up in most places — and it is for this reason that we chose #sexandrage by the legendary #evebabitz as our july #belletrist book pick. babitz’s heroine, jacaranda, speaks volumes to the messiness and mistakes that mark adolescence. I can’t wait for you guys to read her story, and to hopefully enjoy the rest of the eve babitz collection once you finish this one. read it on the beach, read it in your house, read it on the subway, read it wherever books are read…which is, of course, everywhere." @emmaroberts
