New. 'We the Parasites is my new favorite book, a dazzlingly erudite disquisition on the erotics of criticism, riven with knockout sentences and a luxuriant sensibility. A. V. Marraccini stops you in your tracks, urges you to think with her a while about the delicious joy of art, how we grow huge and terrifying on it, and how this thievery, this parasitism is necessary both for aits continuance and for our own.' —Lauren Elkin, author of Flâneuse: Women Walk the City Intertwining fig wasps, Updike, Genet, Twombly, Rilke, jewel heists, and a vividly rendered panoply of histories and myths from classical antiquity, it both tells a strange love story and makes a slantwise argument about reading with the body. We The Parasites reconfigures how longing changes and informs our relationship with art and literature, and asks what it means to want.
