"Identity would seem to be the garment with which one covers the nakedness of the self: in which case, it is best that the garment be loose, a little like the robes of the desert, through which robes one’s nakedness can always be felt, and, sometimes, discerned.

Funky as all hell.

Easily one of my favourite Nina Simone tracks. Smooth, sexy, with bite.

"If we consider murder innately unforgivable, we have to ask why we give a prisoner the chance to prove his rehabilitation in front of a parole board every two years after he’s served his minimum sentence. To have his hopes squashed? To punish him even further?"

Sabine Heinlein writes about prisoners’ reactions to her book Among Murderers: Life After Prison for the Paris Review.
