Poetry. "j/j hastain's Luci is the most seductive devil I've met in some time. A queer devil, she must learn to know her cursed body in all its mercurial forms—as black hole, cave lip, letter, fatty winged-thing, beauty, ravisher, mass of genres, thirsts, and images. In investigating the medium of her own body, she becomes mediumistic to the bodies of others, and most fatally drawn to that impossible bit of clay: the human. hastain dresses and undresses Luci's body in a garment of prose as fluid and fulgurating as Luci herself. This is a smoking, lucid book, a vermilion and quicksilver book."—Joyelle McSweeney
