Catalog copy:
To survive romantic love, the woman served the other woman desert dirt with shells as the truck stop receded into the distance”: So observes the mordantly detached voice of a women, an extravagantly pained, ecstatic, self-and-other-lacerating imaginative journey dedicated “to relationship.” Auto-ethnographic postmortem on love, fragmented body floating through distillations of desire, sex, and death, lyric fever dream, avant-garde performance piece, manifesto of queer resistance, Vanessa Roveto’s phantasmagorical second book is several contradictory states bound together in a single invented language, resembling but never quite identifying with our own.
