Humor their shared currency, and sex, too; they were both only twenty-five and Maya raw, experienced, a bucket of need. But after a few months of going to films or getting drinks, fucking on her couch or the floor or the hallway, then waking up to get in line for brunch, he wished that the rapier wit, the strength of feeling that attracted him in Maya wouldn’t take incessant aim at things he held sacred: seeing indie films on opening night at the Angelika (“that’s why God invented television”), downtown lounges with loud music (“why must I yell instead of converse?”) and her classmates who welcomed Carl (“snobs and bores. Rina was different”). Unnerving that she had no interest in being his social entréewhile at the same time she held her wealth of knowledge and her plain old wealth over his head. “Please.

She often let him treat her, even though he knew she had enough cash to buy $200 shoes and leave the price tag on for him to see.
