  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
This is a hard book to review because I'm not sure I really got it. I want to read more of the author's poetry - the book feels like a prose poem, so much so that it's often hard to keep track of who's speaking at any given moment.

I personally had a hard time getting past some of the grosser body stuff in the book, but ymmv. There are parts where I was like "oh my God I love this" and then we'd get to another bit of body horror or shit, and I'd have to disengage again.
