"One thing I’ve learned, transcribing these CONFESSIONS has taught me, we all knew a lot more at young ages than we remember knowing, later. Some kind of peculiar amnesia must set in. Some kind of reinvention of ourselves. Maybe because much of what we knew we didn’t like knowing and worked to forget so if you haven’t been keeping a diary or such (and nobody does, these days) you’ll succeed in forgetting what’s mysterious, upsetting."
— Foxfire: Confessions of a Girl Gang par Joyce Carol Oates
