Susan Straight

  • Marriage wrecks any decent relationship.

  • Driving back to Rio Seco, both SaRonn and Willa slept in the lowering dark. Marcus sped east, watching the darker purple shadows of the earth rise to meet the bright turquoise evening. Chocolate city, he thought, but he didn't want to wake her to see if she remembered the Parliament song. Finis did. And the vanilla suburbs. But L.A. wasn't set up like that anymore. More like marble-fudge ice cream, with darker swirls and blended territories.

  • ... I never took the bus. Never. Walking meant you were eccentric or pious or a loser — riding the bus meant you were insane or masochistic and worse than a loser.

    • Susan Straight,
    • "The Golden Gopher," in Denise Hamilton, ed., Los Angeles Noir ()
  • I have a million nightingales on the branches of my heart singing freedom.

Susan Straight, U.S. writer

(1960)
