I picked up this book because of the campus novel aspect, a genre I am invested in! The work is unique and experimental, reminiscent of the MFA program that is described within it. The whole work has a very Alice fell down the rabbit hole quality – as in a wonder where the main character was hallucinating or whether the entire novel was a metaphor for the artistic birth she was experiencing. Female relationships – both with haters, and with a lover is at the center of the work. This novel really got me thinking!!
