In my late teens, this book marked my discovery of the existence of the Mad Pride movement. And never was such a pivotal discovery wrapped in such a compulsively readable package (with clever queer sensibility, to boot.)

At the time I read this book (1998-1999) I was an active member of an internet community she mentions (alt.support.depression), and I was participating in a mailing list for depressives as well. I felt as if I knew her because I was so familiar with the world she was describing in the book - depression, internet communities, mailing lists, concern for people you've never met but to whom you feel closer than you do to your own real-life acquaintances.
Allison Landa
Phenomenal. One of my all-time favorites. Funny and profound, timely and timeless. I read it every now and again for inspiration, and I am never disappointed.
Snarky's
One of the best novels about lesbians. She does things with language that are so familiar and accessible yet totally unconventional.

I don't think I expected this novel to be as well put-together as it was, but I was engrossed! I'd recommend it highly.
Ryan
