"Today I am A Book" bares the teeth that match our wounds. To call this book raw is not entirely correct because "raw" suggests unrefinement and superfoods like a diamond in the rough or a kale shake that tastes like regurgitated grass. This book is ...more
Antonia Crane and 1 other person liked Blake's review of After Birth:
After Birth by Elisa Albert
"You will not like the characters in this book. You're not supposed to.

These women are not enjoying the "joys" of motherhood. And for that reason alone, I liked this book.

Motherhood is fucking hard. I like books that paint this picture - because i..." Read more of this review »

Why so angry, Elisa Albert? I detest stories in which women slash other women to the bone because it's clever and for the first 50 pages, I felt stuck in a particularly sharp episode of The Real Housewives of Elisa Albert, but without the hot shoes a ...more

If you are looking for a rape story pulsing with poetry and violence, snatch this book and don't let go until the crashing tone forces you to throw it against the wall in fury. From the get, the voice of this true account digs deep into sad, cagey he ...more

Nothing tugs at the heart and knocks on despair's door like a beautifully crafted incest story and "Excavation" does so much more. The author has total command over the complexity of desire, a daughter's alienation from her peers, and her yearning fo ...more

Roxane Gay's "Untamed State" is harrowing and gorgeous. Her vital and fierce characters are driven by love. She craftily weaves in the fairy tales we tell ourselves and in this story, those tales are shredded and tortured.

“Hating L.A. was in my Northern California DNA. We even had a burl plaque that hung on our living room wall that read, “We Don’t Give a Damn How it’s Done in L.A.”
Antonia Crane, Spent: A Memoir

“The feminism I desired called for a remapping of all of my relationships, the disruption of all officially charted maps. It called into question the possibility of love and lit the match of my lesbian body.”
