Love Dance of the Mechanical Animals

A collection of stories by

Charting Life at Its Most Bizarre . . .
is an obsession for Maggie Estep, and in Love Dance of the Mechanical Animals this obsession reaches a fever pitch that is as readable and as entertaining as it is strange.

Here is your chance to experience the world according to one of our most original and honest voices. Love Dance of the Mechanical Animals showcases some of the best of what Maggie Estep has to offer. Here, gathered together for the first time, are Maggie's infamous spoken word pieces - including 'Sex Goddess of the Western Hemisphere,' 'Hey Baby,' and 'I'm an Emotional Idiot,' - that landed her on MTV and HBO's Def Poetry Jam. This varied collection also brings together a myriad of writing styles, such as diary-style magazine columns, articles highlighting Estep's friends and heroes - from punk godfather Iggy Pop to Permanent Midnight author Jerry Stahl - and short stories that feature Maggie's own brand of original fiction.

From her many smoking relapses, to her obsession with horses and horse racing, to her manic love life, to her motley assortment of friends, to her battles with an onslaught of killer attack 'biker' fleas, to an epistolary short story that is a collaboration with Rick Moody, Maggie Estep offers a humorous if twisted view of reality in Love Dance of the Mechanical Animals.
