THE GATES OF HELL BY KATHRYN BUCKLEY 34THPARALLEL MAGAZINE ISSUE 32

You wish you weren't and that you had Taylor Swift's pluckiness when it all went down, the failed book deal with Viking even though you were promised by your money grubbing agent that writing the female porn version of Bill Cosby's drugged up romances called I Had a Dream was going to make you so fucking famous that no one would even care about Donald Trump running for president.
