About this product
- DescriptionChelsea Martin continues to prove herself the preeminent chronicler of Internet age malaise and I fucking love it. Mickey takes her provocative poetry long form, weaving the tangled tale of a breakup that shouldn't be as confusing as it is. This has replaced Anne of Green Gables as my cozy times reading. Who the fuck kws what that says about me, but it says a LOT about the power of Chelsea's writing. Lena Dunham After breaking up with her boyfriend Mickey, a young woman struggles to situate her life and her art, and reach her estranged mother. Told in a series of vignettes, Mickey is one young woman s journey to figuring out life (or t) amidst drunken mistakes, reality TV marathons, bathroom sex, and the daydreamed titles of imaginary art installations. If you enjoy futility, sarcasm, aggravation and art, then you will most likely enjoy this book as an excellent distraction from your own self-conscious and self-sabotaging brain. Chicago Tribune Chelsea Martin's Mickey is beyond superlatives but I'll use them anyway: intelligent, hysterical, elusive, an exquisite original. If you enjoy thinking, laughing, and self-loathing, read this book. Chloe Caldwell, author of Women and I'll Tell You in Person There is other writer who makes me laugh out loud more than Chelsea Martin. Both hysterical and heart-wrenching, Mickey is a well-rounded, hyper-realistic portrait of heartbreak in the age of the Internet. Mira Gonzalez, author of I will never be beautiful eugh to make us beautiful together [Mickey is] funny, tragic, relatable, fantastic, dark but also, in its own unique way, weirdly hopeful. It is a reflection of its time, where social media boils emotional output down to the bare nerve and can fray our IRL connection with our fellow humans  Chelsea Martin is the kind of author that has her finger on the pulse of this style of writing. Electric LiteratureChelsea Martin is the author of four books, including her small press bestseller, Even Though I Don t Miss You.
