Poetry. Science Fiction. Melding the language of sci-fi and sensuality, CYBORGIA, Susan Slaviero's redolent, ambitious debut, wallows delightfully in its rhythm and vocabulary, yet remains sharp and meticulous. A lyric guide to cyborg feminism--complete with robosexuality and teledildonics--Slaviero traverses traditional female tropes, including fairy-tale heroines, mermaids, and brides. Full of lucent wit, imagination, intelligence and a scathing playfulness.
