Tight Little Vocal Cords
Fiction. LGBTQIA Studies. Loie Rawding's debut novel is a prismatic journey into the depths of one young person's chaotic psychic and physical awakening. Part fiction, part poetry, part cabaret, Rawding sketches a surreal world that is at once historical and hauntingly modern; a place where to deep dive into love can save, and to stay silent will most certainly destroy.
The reader surges along on a sparkling current of daring language and insightful structural play, carried into overlapping landscapes of sexuality and history, love and isolation, and form and feeling, always eddying back to the wondrous, grief-laden mystery of embodiment.--Joseph Scapellato
It's a book of flesh-filled phantoms singing in pornosophical chorus. Their song will leave you silky, limp-lidded, stained, and strangely sated.--Joanna Ruocco
