It was the loss of another of those New York voices, one with a feminism tinged with darkly sardonic humor, which goes down easier for me than forever analyzing and over-analyzing what may or may not be “problematic”. (I’m still sure my whole existence is “problematic”. And so is yours. And yours, too.)
