Its rare, I would say, to read a book that is a pitch perfect projection of the personality of its author. There is usually a little mediation, a smoothing out of the edges, a tendency to perfect the self-portrait. Not so with Erica Buists This Partys Dead, which can perhaps be described as a rollicking, globe-trotting death adventure, albeit not of the victim tourism sort.

An intertextual installation of joy to uplift the heartbeat that keeps us alive. Installation as party as mode of survival counteracting narratives of bodily shame and poverty porn, of marginalized people living only in suffering. COVID-19 civil disunity, writing through quarantine in NYC.
