Nonfiction. "Red cheeks. Auburn hair. Gray eyes, ever sparkling with delight and mischief. Fantastic earrings in her ears, picturesquely dressed, ever ready to live and to be merry: That's the real Djuna as she walks down Fifth Avenue or sips her black coffee, a cigarette in hand, in the Café Lafayette. Her morbidity is not a pose. It is as sincere as she is herself" -Guido Bruno, from an interview with Djuna Barnes.
