Who is this sassy lost child

So much for browsing without interruption. Jasmine - he was pretty sure the girl's name was Jasmine, though his memory space devoted to Jasmines in the junior class was mostly full of the other Jasmine and all the myriad reasons to avoid her - had perked up as soon as she realized the person coming through the door was from Cochise. Jae personally couldn't say that he especially liked bumping into people he knew while he was at work, but he supposed an empty store on a Sunday afternoon was boring enough that you'd take what you could get.

"Hey, Jazz." Did this Jasmine also go by Jazz? He didn't know. He also didn't intend to get sucked into conversation with her long enough to find out.

Jae located the sign designating the fiction section and paused before it, wondering if it would be easier to just head over to the As and start looking there or if he should check "New Arrivals" first. He wasn't sure how recently this Adichie person's last book had been published, but maybe it was worth a shot?
"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
