Mostly Dead Things -- Kristen Arnett

Staff Pick

Finally, someone has combined all my interests in one book: queer longing, death, kinky art, and taxidermy. Mix in grief and big questions about how one loves and fits in with their family, and you have Mostly Dead Things by Kristen Arnett. This is a visceral (often with actual viscera) and physical book, filled with bodies and intimacy. And yet this physicality only serves to show that achieving emotional intimacy and openness is often much more difficult than creating a perfect peacock mount.
