Reviews

...this collected correspondence offers a fascinating glimpse of two artists at a time when they were as passionate about each another as their work.

--Publishers Weekly

Described as 'a Plato's Symposium for the twenty-first century, but written for queers, transsexuals, nerds, and book geeks', this voyeuristic, epistolary saga gives us a unique insight into the lives of two artists at a time when they were as passionate about each other as they were their work. I'm Very Into You presents us with the guilty pleasure of gossip at its very smartest.
