Product Details

Praise

At 27, Michelle Tea is an ex-prostitute, ex-Goth, ex-drummer for Dirt Bike Gang, ex-straight girl, ex-lesbian separatist vegan, ex-Catholic schoolgirl, and ex-resident of Chelsea, Boston’s working class slum. She is poised, with this breakthrough debut volume, to become the spokesperson for America’s young queer girl mutant horde.—New Books Weekly

Full of burning intensity.

New York Times

Sentences that snap, and pop off the page to create a wholly formed, gruesomely real universe between the book covers.

Chas Bowie, Portland Mercury

The first time I read The Passionate Mistakes and Intricate Corruption of One Girl in America, I thought, Yes. Finally. No book has gotten closer to describing my own experience as a teen American girl, even though I came of age on a different continent than Michelle Tea, and never slept with another girl, and never worked as a prostitute. She captures something so close to the core of contemporary female experience that I want to get trite about it. I want to gush. I want to call her the Voice of a Generation, the New Jack Kerouac.

Bookslut

The legacy of thirty years of feminism…. Rollicking and blistering, pained and hilarious, wired and wild-eyed and smashingly good.

Laurie Stone, Village Voice
