Description: a collection of things I like, things that matter to me in one way or another. I am based in Phoenix, AZ. I am probably old enough to have been born circa 1978. My parents named me Tara. INTJ, if you're wondering.

Gore Vidal and Tennessee Williams at Cafe Nicholson in New York City (1949).

Gore Vidal: “Yes, I like the company of other writers. Christopher Isherwood, Tennessee Williams, and Paul Bowles have been friends. But I am not so sure [Henry] James meant that Hawthorne’s isolation had to do with not knowing other writers. I think James meant that the American scene was culturally so thin that it was hard to develop intellectually if you had nobody to talk to. This explains the solipsistic note in the work of so many American writers. They think they are the only ones in the world to doubt the existence of God, say—like Mark Twain, for instance.”
