I’m often confused by the arguments of so-called feminists — like the preposterous accusations by some that your writing is misogynistic.

He brings a movie star quality to it. That’s why people talk about this movie and say, ‘It’s funny, I didn’t find Nick so likeable in the book!’ Well, that’s the Affleck effect!

Yes, I am finally a match for Amy. The other morning I woke up next to her, and I studied the back of her skull. I tried to read her thoughts. For once I didn’t feel like I was staring into the sun. I’m rising to my wife’s level of madness. Because I can feel her changing me again: I was a callow boy, and then a man, good and bad. Now at last I’m the hero. I am the one to root for in the never-ending war story of our marriage. It’s a story I can live with. Hell, at this point, I can’t imagine my story without Amy. She is my forever antagonist.
We are one long frightening climax.

3) I really want this to hang in my room.
