Eurydice in the Underworld (1998)
Kathy Acker
"Kathy Acker's writing is virtuoso, maddening, crazy, so sexy, so painful, and beaten out of a wild heart that nothing can tame. Acher is a landmark writer."

The Last Family in England (2004)
Matt Haig
"I love this book. It's fabulous and moving and funny and strange. It will go down among the great animal books."
