Playful and sexy, Lawlor’s novel is a hymn to the pleasures of gender fluidity – but also a tribute to queer theory, LGBT communities and to reading itself.
I love this book, in all its ecstasy, wit, and hilarity . . . The liberatory rush of Lawlor’s writing is as rare as it is contagious, not to mention HOT. Paul is on fire, and an antihero for the ages.
Despite being unapologetically queer, is a book that deserves to break out of the LGBT speciality bookshops . . . Lawlor’s writing is evocative and urgent . . . and very funny
I am such a fan. Andrea Lawlor’s prose is restless, muscular and playful . . . It’s a tight satisfying masterpiece
