We were on the precipice of a hostile vaginal takeover. I googled my first blowjob for no particular reason. In this bombastic and compassionate parable of loss and disorientation, Katie Schwartz’s debut essay collection Emotionally Pantsed details her journey of falling apart in a million pieces to her quest to try to find the courage to put herself back together.
An irreverently honest confessional, inventing words when hyperboles simply do not suffice; Schwartz effortlessly emerges as a dominatrix of content and style. Skillfully conveying the absurdities and travesties of life with a devilish smile, while pointing to the triumph of the human spirit, her tales are destined to make a splash in the literary underground circles.
