Reviews

A lean-forward experience, and in its most transcendent moments, reading it can feel like having the best conversation of your life.--Rachel Syme
An important and frequently surprising book... could be read as the foundation for a post-avant-garde aesthetics... Nelson, who is also a poet, is such a graceful writer that I...just sat back and enjoyed the show.--Laura Kipnis
[Nelson] dexterously, and creatively, manages to hold a mirror to our culture's fascination with cruelty and invites us to reflect on our personal reasons for indulging it.--Eleni Theodoropoulos
