“I love Marylou. As a character she’s very vivid, she jumps right off the page and smacks you in the face with her tongue. She never sold herself, that was one thing about her that was really very different from everybody involved in that movement. She wasn’t rebelling against anything, she was so just being herself. It wasn’t her priority to be a part of something that was moving other people; it was just about the people that she loved. She’s so completely human, she never made herself a commodity. I think if you were to choose one character that embodied the spirit of this book, it was her.” - Kristen Stewart
