One Response to “New in April: Susie Bright & Susan Sontag”

  1. Sally 5 April 2011 at 2:45 PM #

    The Enterprise of Death was such a wonderfully messed-up book (I reviewed it earlier this week). They way in which Jesse deals with the theme of being a social outscast is really interesting, setting up Awa as a victim of slavery, a necromancer, and a lesbian.
