"Desperate to quell her addiction to drugs, disastrous romance, and nineties San Francisco, Michelle heads south for LA. But soon it's officially announced that the world will end in one year, and life in the sprawling metropolis becomes increasingly weird. While living in an abandoned bookstore, dating Matt Dillon, and keeping an eye on the encroaching apocalypse, Michelle begins a new novel, a sprawling and meta-textual exploration to complement her promises of maturity and responsibility. But as she tries to make queer love and art without succumbing to self-destructive vice, the boundaries between storytelling and everyday living begin to blur, and Michelle wonders how much she'll have to compromise her artistic process if she's going to properly ride out doomsday. Michelle Tea is the author of numerous books, including Rent Girl, Valencia, and How to Grow Up. She is the creator of the Sister Spit all-girl open mic and 1997-1999 national tour. In 2003, Michelle founded RADAR Productions, a literary non-profit that oversees queer-centric projects"--… (mer)

Reading this novel is like leaping from rock to rock across a rushing river when you're not sure there is any way to get all the way across or if instead you're just going to tumble in and get carried downstream. Fearless, propulsive motion. Liquid language that tumults forward. A collapse between writer, narrator, and reader that feels physical and actual, not metafictional and theoretical. It left me breathless and exhilarated. ( )

4.5 stars. I don't think I'd ever have stumbled onto this book without the Tournament of Books 2017. Thanks ToB! While there were bits and pieces that didn't totally add up for me (like Michelle suddenly going quantum on a couple of relationships once she got to LA) 95% of it hit me just right, including the memoir-ish approach, author Michelle's gentle, affectionate irony toward the trainwreck that is character Michelle and most of her friends, the meta-ness of the sections in LA, and her depiction of the end of the world. I could add more instances, but I don't want to spoil the many treats new readers will have in store. Some readers have described this book as meta-fiction, or alternative in some way, which makes it sound like a chore to read, but it's not - I'd describe it as charming and fun. ( )

This book was all over the place, and that was a good thing. We follow our main character, Michelle, from San Francisco to LA as she experiences sex, drugs, alcohol, love, family, friends, Matt Dillon, and the end of the world. The writing is really good, the story is completely original, and the book was fun. ( )

Oh, Michelle Tea. We all knew there was zero chance I wouldn't buy this book, especially with the promise that Tea had finally written her long hinted at science fiction novel. Not that this big beautiful mess of a book is traditional science fiction. The first half if more like a fictionalized version of one of Tea's many memoirs, with some occasional "the earth is dying" mentions thrown in for background. In part two the book transforms. Michelle moves to Los Angeles, is writing a screenplay, and is also clearly now writing this book, and struggling with how to write the story when none of her exes want to be included in it, figuring out how to find other motivations for her actions when certain people have been written out, and struggling with how to make her story "universal," or at least relatable to the rich white (mostly straight) men who are the cultural gate keepers in L.A. (and everywhere). On top of all that, the end of the world is accelerating, and as people are figuring out how to deal with that, they begin to have psychic dreams connecting them with lovers that many of them then track down in waking life.

There are so many ideas here. Are all of them fully realized? I don't know. At a certain point my fondness for Tea pretty much wins over. I love her, and I love that she's taking these big risks. I love that there are a million apocalyptic stories in the world and this is like none of them. ( )
