    "I loved every page of this gorgeous, grotesque, heartbreaking novel."
    —Carmen Maria Machado, author of Her Body and Other Parties

    “Insightful and incisive, this book cuts deep into the failing heart of the feminine mystique. Etter is a surgeon.”
    —Amelia Gray, author of Isadora and Gutshot

    A surreal exploration of one woman’s life and death against a landscape of meat, office desks, and bad men.

    The Book of X tells the tale of Cassie, a girl born with her stomach twisted in the shape of a knot. From childhood with her parents on the family meat farm, to a desk job in the city, to finally experiencing love, she grapples with her body, men, and society, all the while imagining a softer world than the one she is in. Twining the drama of the everyday—school-age crushes, paying bills, the sickness of parents—with the surreal—rivers of thighs, men for sale and fields of throats—Cassie’s realities alternate to create a blurred, fantastic world of haunting beauty.

    With luminous insight and fervent prose, Andre Perry’s debut collection of personal essays, Some of Us Are Very Hungry Now, travels from Washington DC to Iowa City to Hong Kong in search of both individual and national identity. While displaying tenderness and a disarming honesty, Perry catalogues racial degradations committed on the campuses of elite universities to liberal bastions like San Francisco while coming of age in America.
