Emily M. Danforth’s adult debut PLAIN BAD HEROINES is an intricate, capital-G Gothic tome of sapphic love, tragedy, and so many yellow jacket wasps. Seriously, just an exorbitant amount of wasps.
BURN OUR BODIES DOWN is nothing short of a mindfuck. What an odd, serpentine novel full of inherited secrets, unexpected body horror, and multigenerational mother-daughter tensions. It’s one of those books where nothing is obviously wrong for a lot of it, but you know for a fact that something is about to strike. And then, when everything goes up in flames and you turn the final page, you’re left feeling confused and hollowed out. I felt like I had a hangover after reading this book, but like, in a good way.
CINDERELLA IS DEAD is a fun, feminist, subversive fairy tale retelling with a protagonist of color and a happy sapphic ending.
