Anything That Moves (Hardcover)
Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
From being caught having their first orgasm by their mom's
best friend to being stalked and propositioned by a fundamentalist pastor; from
soliciting spanking dates over the Internet to scoring a coveted invitation to
a threesome with some elf fetishist neighbors, art rock darling (Xiu Xiu)
Jamie Stewart's journey of fleshy
self-discovery and queer awakening makes for an extraordinary, cringy,
unputdownable epic in miniature, burning always with radical and often shocking
A one-of-a-kind exploration of abasement, depravity, joy,
and embarrassment (and even joy in embarrassment),
Anything That Moves is a series of
comic, tragic X-rays of sex. It is funny, erotic, anti-erotic, honest, brave,
icky, and hauntingly sad by turns. It demonstrates too how love and forgiveness
can percolate around the edges of even the most traumatic relationships.
Stewart's band Xiu Xiu has been called "self-flagellating,"
"brutal," "shocking," and "perverse," but also "genius," "brilliant," "unique,"
"imaginative," and "luminous." Readers can expect nothing less from Anything That Moves.
