Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’ By

Upper West Side, 1982 by Rostam Batmanglij for This Is Our Youth

"As soon as I read it I thought about myself at that age, I had just moved to upper Manhattan to go to school. A bunch of my time in that period of my life was spent studying piano, and the piano’s this instrument you can find in apartment buildings throughout New York. So it was important for me to write something that could realistically be heard coming down the hall— maybe from an apartment next door to Dennis’s. And it was also important to me that there be a bit of the feeling that a person has maybe come home late at night, in a somewhat altered state, and they sit down at a piano and this is what comes out of them and it’s never existed before." -Rostam Batmanglij (via Pitchfork)
