The easiest way to describe this book is as a good and compelling Hamlet retelling (starring a trans character!), but it's so much more than that. It's a murder mystery, a revenge story, and a musing about the power of language and intention, with a wonderfully built mythology and a fascinatingly weird narrator.

Reading Bakic's stories is like sitting down in a chair with uneven legs right as you’re told the authorities are on their way, & this time, they're not bringing the robots. Unsettling in unsettling ways, Bakic's mix of realism with science fiction & fabulism occupies the uncanny valley between the recognizable & the unrecognizable, unsheathing the weirdness of daily life & presenting a picture of humanity that is unsettling because of how quickly you recognize it.
