Here Is Everything You Want

“American artists are so embarrassed by American life,” I said. “So contemptuous of it.”

“It’s not as if they’re afraid,” she said. “They have to be superior to what they represent. They are embarrassed even that they do it so well.”

“Why?” I asked.

“It’s like a dream, American life. It frightens you. You feel you have to make fun of it, no matter how much you secretly love it. I mean, here is everything you want. You have to say it’s horrible.”

—Anne Rice, Belinda
