Review from a Transgressive Fiction Fan
I am TOTALLY flipping out over this. I read it three times so far. Best book I’ve read in past year. I’m a big Megan Abbott fan and saw her name mentioned as comparison on teh cover with Twin Peaks. I don’t know too much about Twin Peaks but I feel like it must have a strange cool vibe because it was very Megan Abbott like Dare Me but more ghostly / suspenseful at times. The author flowed from past and present in such interesting ways. I didn’t always realize immediately that I had changed time points and it totally worked. I dont’ know what else to say since I don’t want to spoil anything. It’s more Megan Abbott meets Murakami to me but I guess I need to watch Twin Peaks to know if that’s the right comparison.

Ain’t nobody got time for that amount of description. I do not need to know what what the doors of a balcony look like followed by the rails of the balcony . Just fucking call them balcony rails. Boom. Done.
