This was such a good play! It really questions how the art world values protest art and fetishizes Black death.
The world is ending but my queer heart is singing! ♥ It's the end times in LA and San Francisco, where Michelle Tea takes us through trials of love and self-destruction with such dreamy reflections and humor. A fictional "Michelle" struggles with relationships, drugs, and writing her book, but in the face of inescapable apocalypse you'll find gritty tenderness and a new lust for life.
Fascinating stories, as everyday as the settings may seem. It's dark and funny. At first the characters may feel like ordinary people, but in just a few pages you're deep into their conflicts and mannerisms. And, of course, Tomine's illustrations are simply beautiful.
Myles insists her dog Rosie wrote this book, through her, and it was so fun to read. Together they shift between different narrators and voices. At times it felt like reading a series of poetic letters— Myles writes like a steadily racing mind of humorously profound and frank observations of her dog's and her own life. Sometimes absurd, sometimes profound, and always beautifully strange— you definitely don't have to be a dog person to love this book.
