Woke up craving Leonard Schlain’s The Alphabet Versus The Goddess: The Conflict Between Word and Image. Too bad the book is lying flat in a cardboard box somewhere in a Stamford, Connecticut storage unit. Damn. I read it once during a summer in college, twice in my 20′s and now I’m 31 and I need it again… pronto.
But this time, as a woman who spends her days with the alphabet, I want to say, “But Leonard, I want to be the goddess and the alphabet.”
