You think everyone will stay behind and do everything you did all over again, forever. You picture old geezers in jean jackets doing whip-its behind the plaza.

The Rough Beast snorted. 'You don't get it at all, buddy. It's not about wrestling. It's about stories. We're storytellers.' Caperton studied him. 'Somebody at my job just said that.' 'It's true! You have to be able to tell the story to get people on board for anything. A soft drink, a suck sesh, elective surgery, gardening, even your thing-public space? I prefer private space, but that's cool. Anyway, nobody cares about anything if there isn't a story attached. Ask the team that wrote the Bible. Ask Vincent Allan Poe.' 'But doesn't it seem kind of creepy?' Caperton said. 'All of us just going around calling ourselves storytellers?' The Rough Beast shrugged. 'Well, you can be negative. That's the easy way out.

I was also one of those people who hadn't caught up with the latest social networking site. Maura belonged to most of them. She passed most evenings befriending men who had tried to date-rape her in high school, but I was still stuck in the last virtual community, a sad place to be, like Europe, say, during the Black Death. Whenever I cruised this site, with its favorites lists and its paeans to somebody's cousin's gas station art gallery, I could not help but think of medieval corpses in the spring-thaw mud, buboes sprouted in every armpit and anus, black bile curling out of frozen mouths. Those of us still cursed with life wandered the blasted dales of this stricken network, wept and moaned and flogged ourselves with frayed AC adaptors, called out for God to strike us dead, or else let us find somebody who liked similar bands.

You're growing up. All you need to remember is that nothing changes. New technology, new markets, global interconnectivity, doesn't matter. It's still the rulers and the ruled. The fleecers and the fleeced.' 'Which are you?' 'I'm a piece of expensive equipment. You, too. Maybe not so expensive. [... ]

Oh, do you, Milo? You're so selfish. You don't see the bigger picture.' 'What's the bigger picture?' 'You're still here looking for handouts. Who's going to take care of me?' 'I'm on my knees here, Mom. Not for me, for my family. For my wife. For a beautiful grandson you have totally ignored.' 'He's kind of a brat. I'll be in his life when he gets a little impulse control.' 'He's not even four.' 'I have needs. I'm tired of this child-worshipping culture. You're just a slave to it, Milo.' 'I'm only trying to be a decent dad.' 'Don't waste your time. It's not in your genes. Besides, try making some money. That might be a good dad move. For heaven's sake, the system's rigged for white men and you still can't tap in.' 'You're right, Mom. What can I say? But still, it would mean a lot to me if you made a little more of an effort with Bernie.' 'Bernie schmernie. This is my decade.' 'Okay, you wrinkled old spidercunt, have it your way.

You said you were having a dream.' 'It's true, I did.' 'Was it the one where you're inside the girl and you are pumping her and pumping her and you are so happy but then it turns out it's not a girl, it's really one of those super poisonous box jellyfish, and it stings you and you are screaming and screaming and the sky rains the diarrhea of babies?' 'The... no, I don't think so.' 'I get that sometimes. Anyway, see you around.

We'd been walking in endless rectangles and now we were near the candy store again. The lights were out, the security gate down. We leaned up against the wall of a bank and I could feel the cool stone on my back, the billions of dollars thrumming through wires beneath and behind me, or on the night waves above. I wasn't quite sure how they traveled. Or how much they got out anymore.

Yes, ' said Cooley. 'That is the question, as the Bard might say.' 'The Bard?' 'What's so funny?' said Cooley. 'Nothing, sir, ' I said. 'I just didn't know people still used that term.' 'Well, I'm a people, Burke. Am I not?' 'Of course.' 'If you prick me, do I not bleed, you scat-gobbling, mother-rimming prick?' Occasionally Dean Cooley reverted to a vocabulary more suited to his marine years, but some maintained it was only when he felt threatened, or stretched for time. 'Yes, sir, ' I said.

So, yes, I should have just surrendered, cinched the entitled scion her little pouch of entitlements, put in my calls to the name shufflers, done my duty. I thought about that moment later on. Maybe I got extratuned to the concept of bitchhood once I became Purdy's, though I must confess I've always found such usage of the term for female dogs distasteful. My mother was a second-wave feminist. I wasn't comfortable saying 'cunt' until I was twenty-three, at which point, admittedly, I couldn't hold back for a time.

One of my big revelations was that nobody cares whether you write your novel or not. They want you to be happy. Your parents want you to have health insurance. Your friends want you to be a good friend. But everyone's thinking about their own problems and nobody wakes up in the morning thinking, 'Boy, I sure hope Sam finishes that chapter and gets one step closer to his dream of being a working writer.' Nobody does that. If you want to write, it has to come from you. If you don't want to write, that's great. Go do something else. That was a very liberating moment for me.
