Nightwood - T.S. Eliot, Jeanette Winterson, Djuna Barnes

A man is whole only when he takes into account his shadow.


Djuna Barnes


By the time Djuna Barnes (born June 12, 1892) wrote Nightwood, she was already a celebrated journalist. She got her first job as a reporter at the Brooklyn Daily Eagle by saying at the interview: “I can draw and write, and you’d be a fool not to hire me.”
