  • ⋅If you're interested in how people behave, if you're interested in the way they talk about themselves, the way the conceive of themselves, it's very hard to ignore drugs nowadays, because that is so much part of the conversation. /Jonathan Franzen

  • ⋅It's very liberating for me to realize that I don't have to step up to the plate with a plot that involves the U.N. Security Council. /Jonathan Franzen

  • ⋅I voluntarily inflicted a certain level of insanity on myself. /Jonathan Franzen
  • ⋅Depression, when it's clinical, is not a metaphor. It runs in families, and it's known to respond to medication and to counseling. However truly you believe there's a sickness to existence that can never be cured, if you're depressed you will sooner or later surrender and say: I just don't want to feel bad anymore. The shift from depressive realism to tragic realism, from being immobilized by darkness to being sustained by it, thus strangely seems to require believing in the possibility of a cure... /Jonathan Franzen
  • ⋅It'sthe fate of most Ping-Pong tables in home basements eventually to serve the ends of other, more desperate games. /Jonathan Franzen
  • ⋅Just as the camera draws a stake through the heart of serious portraiture, television has killed the novel of social reportage. /Jonathan Franzen

  • ⋅Depression presents itself as a realism regarding the rottenness of the world in general and the rottenness of your life in particular. /Jonathan Franzen
