I fell in love with Melissa Broder after reading So Sad Today, two summers ago.  She has a voice that makes you cringe because you hear horrible (and redeeming) parts of yourself in it, but she also makes it ok.  The Pisces was no exception; it's mermaid erotica with purpose and no apologies. It brought me to terms with nothing-ness and everything-ness all at once.  It taught me more about Sappho.  It was, in a word, thrilling.

I picked this book up for the pink coyote cowgirl; I haven't put it down for the same reason.  Coyote Doggirl navigates feminism and self-exploration through a distorted wild western lens, all while wearing a leather crop top.
