Two Augusts In a Row In a Row reviews

Here are quotes with links to three glowing reviews of Two Augusts In a Row In a Row http://www.publicationstudio.biz/books/294:

"As a genderqueer reader who has never before experienced this kind of raw validation in fiction, I daresay it’s groundbreaking.” ~ Spencer Shannon, WBUR http://artery.wbur.org/2015/07/22/two-augusts-in-a-row

Two Augusts in a Row in a Row is a novel about gender, love, grief and magic. It’s also about the life ingredients that make up a day: the common hum of work, strolls to the corner store for food, the way time collapses while stroking a cat’s fur or watching her sleep. ...Author Shelley Marlow writes with a fluid quality that pulls the reader through these events and passages, twining the workaday and the trippy together….Two Augusts in a Row in a Row makes a strong case for love in the face of all as the truest magic this life has to offer. ~ Heather Seggel, Lambda Literary

"It’s a utopian book, even in the middle of dread climes and dire events, and it’s a book in which “magick” works in oracular turns that regularly trump old-fashioned realism and psychology...Two Augusts in a Row in a Row, like Raymond Queneau’s Zazie dans le Metro, is a love letter, between genres as well: it’s a bildungsroman, an anecdotal history of both performance art and recent pathways of gender subversion, it’s travel writing, porn, commedia dell’arte, epic poetry, postmodernism à la Bertha Harris’s Lover, etiquette guide, closet drama, reportage. And it has that strangely old-fashioned thing—charm, a spell.” ~ Kevin Killian in Bomb Magazine http://bombmagazine.org/article/7336618/shelley-marlow-s-em-two-augusts-in-a-row-in-a-row-em
