Pretty much. #evebabitz #njareads
We are so glad you enjoyed Eve’s writing @booksturnyouon  RP - I have to admit that until I read Sex and Rage, Eve Babitz was unknown to me. After reading it, I had that transcendental feeling that I had just discovered an unforgettable and unique writer. Black Swans: Stories left me with no doubt: I am sold. 💗 Black Swans: Stories, published in 1993, is a collection of brilliant short stories. Babitz explored the modern society of Los Angeles and its beauty and rottenness. Through her honesty, sensitivity and her singular sense of humour, the author wrote about the human condition. . One of my favourite stories is “Black Swans”. What a standout! In this text, Babitz is hopelessly in love with a writer called Walter and is as close to getting married as she would ever be. However, after a magazine that rejected his stories buys one of hers, he abandons Babitz. Although she reconsiders the moment she sent the piece more than once, she had decided she would “become art, not decoration”. . And, in spite of all the plights and the nasty people, Eve Babtiz has always envisioned life like a tango. After all, we just can’t turn to mush, we cannot leave, we must stay and resist. I had this constant feeling like Babitz was this older and wiser sister revealing me the amazing secrets of life. She doesn’t mind rottenness and impoliteness. She thrives on that and transforms it into beauty, into experience, into learning, into literature, into art. . Eve Babitz became one of my muses, undoubtedly, and one of my favourite female writers. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book will be released on April 10. Mark on your calendar now!! I'd also like to thank @counterpointpress for the galley 💗💗 👉 Review on my blog. . ✨ Who is the female author that inspires you the most?  #booksturnyouon #bookslover #booksarelife #bookaholic #bookphoto #booksofinstagram #bookmenow #bookholic #bookgram #readersofinstagram #bookaddiction #bookaddicted #instareads
“Culturally, L.A. has always been a humid jungle alive with seething L.A. projects that I guess people from other places just can't see. It takes a certain kind of innocence to like L.A., anyway. It requires a certain plain happiness inside to be happy in L.A., to choose it and be happy here. When people are not happy, they fight against L.A. and say it's a "wasteland" and other helpful descriptions.” | Oh Eve! This book is just everything. Even though I didn’t grew up in Hollywood all these stories seem so familiar to me, stories I could have told. I love how she writes and what she has to say, the way she thinks. Every page is such a delight and I couldn’t put it down and now I’m sad it’s over. Highly recommending this to everyone 💖 #evebabitz

Eve Babitz and I have lived opposite lives but I suspect we would have bonded over a cocktail—and then she’d‘ve stolen my guy. #evebabitz #nyrb

Hi 💗 From my stories, you probably know that I'm obsessed with my current read: Black Swans by Eve Babitz. 🙈 What will you be reading this week? . 🇵🇹 Oi! Pelas minhas histórias, já devem saber que estou obcecada com a minha leitura: 'Black Swans' da Eve Babitz. O que estão a ler neste momento?  #booksturnyouon #bookslover #booksarelife #bookaholic #bookphoto #booksofinstagram #bookmenow #bookholic #bookgram #readersofinstagram #bookaddiction #bookaddicted #instareads #bookclub #bookblogger #booktoday #bookcover #beautifulbooks #booktag #bookobsessed #bookstagram #booklover #bookworm #booksbooks #currentlyreading #evebabitz #blackswans
' "What does ‘stuck’ mean?” “It means I should make some big decision, I should do some enormous thing. And I can’t do anything. I can’t stand my life, and I can’t change it.” “Maybe it’s not an enormous thing,” he says. “Maybe you have to do one small thing and then another small thing.' - A. M. Homes, Music for Torching  ______________________  Hello all! I'm back after once again after another little break. Being stuck in rut can be frustrating, especially since the realisation hits like a lead weight when the decent into this state usually happens insidiously. And once you're in, it's like quicksand; struggling against this force will only deepen your predicament. So what to do? Reading, writing, reviewing; they all drift along the same mood-dependent current, which right now just leads out to sea. Sitting in a room full of books - water water everywhere but not a drop to drink - it's hard not to be frustrated. What else is there to do but drift? Drift in and out of bookshops, run hopeful fingers along spines and feel the textures of a well-read volume, wishing to absorb the enthusiasm these creases represent. I drift, I babble through Instagram  posts, I buy two books - ever the optimist - and I wait.  _____________________  Does anyone have a different approach to escaping the dreaded rut?
Required California reading. We stayed in Eve’s Hollywood, drove by the Joshua Tree Inn where Gram met his demise and best of all, Joan Didion was walking out of our hotel in La Jolla as we pulled up. I am going to miss California. #evebabitz #gramparsons #joandidion #californiadreaming
