Announcing two new titles from Scary Topiary press!
CRYSTAL MARYS by Feliz Lucia Molina
Written from the impassive surface of the Internet and the high desert of Southern California, CRYSTAL MARYS is a field study of social-media fatigue, suburban youth, Filipino immigrancy, a denim day job in LA’s garment district, and other sites of crystallized dis/enchantment. Molina traces life’s “beautiful unreliable narrative logic” by the devotional images of our times—the Virgin Mary, emoji, family photos, profile pics, etc.
