ALS … For me, it’s really important to think in terms of multiplicity, but not to become attached.

MN What kind of attachment do you mean?

ALS Where one stands in relation to the story that one is telling. The goal is to tell it not only through the personal body, but through a multiplicity of voices. So if you make a proposition, to then become attached to it feels detrimental to the proposition. For instance, you write, “I don’t want to represent anything. […] I have also never been less interested in arguing for the rightness, much less the righteousness, of any particular position or orientation.”

– Maggie Nelson in conversation with A. L. Steiner at BOMB Magazine (here)
