Rebecca Makkai on art

“Write while you can. Paint while you can. Spread your art through the world. Not everyone is so lucky. Publish books and read books and teach books while you can. Take the art you love and blast it from your trumpet. Shout into the wind the names of the things you love.

Art is a radical act. Joy is a radical act.

This is how we keep fighting. This is how we survive.”
