Read full description of the books:
1. Reines is brave and honest because she's willing to admit that being socialized as female is, effectively, being trained to be a corpse.
2. This book starts out politely invitational and theoretical, but something terribly scatological happened about 20 pages in where the lingua bacteria exponentially multiplied. I realized my readership wasn’t shaking the book’s hand, but was actually fisting this orifice of resistance Reines had carved out of our shared pulpy body.
3. This book is shit. Not as in “this book is bad,” but as in this book is shit because all language is shit. It’s what we excise and roll around in. This book is shit, an accursed share, a corpse I’m eating that looks so much like my own corpse (see 1). Just like the brains of cows that are forced to consume their moms and sisters liquefied bodies, all of my lady friends' brains are full of holes. Except instead of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, our brain’s holes look like typographic counters. Our prions will never be quarantined because language and gender have gone septic and you, reader, want to fuck these holes.
4. This book is one of the most righteously helpful books when talking intersectionality between women and non-human animals. It steers the discussion away from pitfalling into an anthropomorphization of non-human animals, and away from reductively equating humans as animals end transmission. Instead, it refocuses: it's about flesh. This book acknowledges a certain type of flesh whose primary mode of being is one of corpsing.
