Don’t be put off by the evocative title and cover. This book is an incredibly honest look into the isolation and painful challenges of motherhood and feminism--but it’s also just really funny, dark, and weird. I haven’t highlighted this many passages in a book in ages!

At 600+ pages it seemed daunting, but I literally cried when it ended and deeply wished that the story would go on and on. It’s speculative, deeply literary, yet so relatable. A true love letter to librarians and book lovers everywhere.
