Lote (Paperback, 2020, Jacaranda Books) No rating

Lush and frothy, incisive and witty, Shola von Reinhold’s decadent queer literary debut immerses readers …

("I don't mind being called birdbrained, in fact it makes me feel avian and charming — like a Luxury," Erskine-Lily said to me days later. "It's being called the other thing. Man. So harsh and vulgar. So... absolute. It always makes me feel sick. Quite disgusting," and shivered involuntarily.)

SO funny

5 stars

I really got such a kick out of this, Ess does an amazing job of writing from the perspective of a character who is kind of a nightmare in way that is self-aware and captures the facepalm-type thoughts of this guy in a way that's funny and realistic. The only thing I wasn't sure about was the ending, and I can't put my finger on exactly why. I guess it felt a little like it gives the reader a moral comeuppance in a way read to me as a little too neat? But I would not let that deter you.
