Michelle Tea recommends
The Seas (2004)
Samantha Hunt
"The Seas is creepy and poetic, subversive and strangely funny, [and] a phenomenal piece of literature."
Nevada (2013)
Imogen Binnie
"[Nevada] is everything-personal, political, funny, raw, hyper-brainy, and down to earth. I want to stay in Maria's brain forever as she rides her bike through the streets of Brooklyn, doggedly hashing out her existence with humor and befuddled honesty. A really powerful new literary voice."
Stray City (2018)
Chelsey Johnson
"A love letter to Portland in the 90s, Stray City is a gorgeous, funny, sharply spot-on tale of growing up and making family again and again and again."
The Future of Another Timeline (2019)
Annalee Newitz
"The mind-blowing punk feminist sci-fi time traveling thriller you've been waiting for, and which our culture desperately needs. Packed with action, sass, righteousness, technology and danger, it just might be a perfect book."
Boys of Alabama (2020)
Genevieve Hudson
"A gripping, uncanny, and queer exploration of being a boy in America, told with detail that dazzles and disturbs."
At Certain Points We Touch (2022)
Lauren John Joseph
"The struggle to find ones place in the world as an artist and lover, creating self and culture as you go along - At Certain Points We Touch captures this fleeting, dazzling moment with glamour and heart."
