Little reviews of little consequence

Birdbrain by Johanna Sinisalo
Two horrible people go camping and are slightly inconvenienced by either magic or nature. I read it in a diner.

Saints and Strangers by Angela Carter
Too many words and I got suspicious.

The Dyke & the Dybbuk by Ellen Gatford
The title is the plot with a little sprinkle of gay-dude-hating and grandpa Jew jokes. Left a confusing 90s taste in my mouth.

Daughters of Elysium by Joan Slonczewski
A painfully earnest account of future humans. She called a penis "mushroom" but I kept reading.

Madwoman of the Sacred Heart by Alejandro Jodorowsky and Moebius
Terrible mid-life man fantasy with religion and big breasts. As boring as that sounds.

Do Me: Tales of Sex & Love from Tin House
Nowhere near enough sex.

Sister Spit: Writing, Rants & Reminiscences from the Road, edited by Michelle Tea
Oh you all did the same thing and wrote slightly different accounts of that thing?
