it was amazing
bookshelves: reviewed
Recommended for: feminists, people interested in alternatives to binary gender and sexuality, intellectual fiction

Brilliant story about love and sex, and the best part is, the gender of the narrator is anonymous. It really demonstrates our cultural incessant need to "know" one's gender or sexuality to categorize it and understand some "thing" about a person, but it also challenges you to look at love and sex as love and sex, not in terms of power or privilege.

Beautifully written.
