Your Body a Bullet is a strange and wonderful compendium that reveals the intimacy (who knew?) of the parasitic relationship. We learn about--among other things--the subterfuge of the cuckoo chick, the violent hunger of the snubnosed eel, and the brutality of the tongue-eating louse. In duets that transcend mere fact, Elizabeth Vignali and Kami Westhoff elucidate the primal balance between parasite and host--a connection that, as the mistletoe says to the oak tree, "feels holy/doesn't it?"
