1 The Pisces

Author : Melissa Broder
Genre :  Literary  Books  Fiction & Literature 
Price :  $12.99
Release Date :  2018-05-01
Description :  <b>“Bold, virtuosic, addictive, erotic – there is nothing like&#xa0;<i>The Pisces</i>. I have no idea how Broder does it, but I loved every dark and sublime page of it.”&#xa0;—Stephanie Danler, author of&#xa0;<i>Sweetbitter&#xa0;</i></b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> Lucy has been writing her dissertation on Sappho for nine years when she and her boyfriend break up in a dramatic flameout. After she bottoms out in Phoenix, her sister in Los Angeles insists Lucy dog-sit for the summer. Annika's home is a gorgeous glass cube on Venice Beach, but Lucy can find little relief from her anxiety — not in the Greek chorus of women in her love addiction therapy group, not in her frequent Tinder excursions, not even in Dominic the foxhound's easy affection. <br /> &#xa0;<br /> Everything changes when Lucy becomes entranced by an eerily attractive swimmer while sitting alone on the beach rocks one night. But when Lucy learns the truth about his identity, their relationship, and Lucy’s understanding of what love should look like, take a very unexpected turn. A masterful blend of vivid realism and giddy fantasy, pairing hilarious frankness with pulse-racing eroticism, THE PISCES is a story about falling in obsessive love with a merman: a figure of Sirenic fantasy whose very existence pushes Lucy to question everything she thought she knew about love, lust, and meaning in the one life we have.

2 So Sad Today

Author : Melissa Broder
Genre :  Biographies & Memoirs  Books  Fiction & Literature  Essays  Health, Mind & Body  Psychology 
Price :  $9.99
Release Date :  2016-03-15
Description :  <b>"These essays are sad and uncomfortable and their own kind of gorgeous. They reveal so much about what it is to live in this world, right now." --Roxane Gay, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Bad Feminist</i></b><br /><br /><b>From acclaimed poet and creator of the popular Twitter account @sosadtoday comes a darkly funny and brutally honest collection of essays.</b><br /><br />Melissa Broder always struggled with anxiety. In the fall of 2012, she went through a harrowing cycle of panic attacks and dread that wouldn't abate for months. So she began @sosadtoday, an anonymous Twitter feed that allowed her to express her darkest feelings, and which quickly gained a dedicated following. In SO SAD TODAY, Broder delves deeper into the existential themes she explores on Twitter, grappling with sex, death, love low self-esteem, addiction, and the drama of waiting for the universe to text you back. With insights as sharp as her humor, Broder explores--in prose that is both ballsy and beautiful, aggressively colloquial and achingly poetic--questions most of us are afraid to even acknowledge, let alone answer, in order to discover what it really means to be a person in this modern world.

3 Last Sext

Genre :  Poetry  Books  Fiction & Literature 
Price :  $9.99
Release Date :  2016-06-14
Description :  In her electric fourth collection, Melissa Broder penetrates the itch of existence and explores numberless deaths: the annihilation of self, the bereavement of love, the destruction of fantasy, the transmutation, even, of our ideas of dying.<br /><br /> One of the New Yorker's Books We Loved in 2016<br /> What emerges is an infinite series of false endings—each a trap door containing the possibility for alchemy, rebirth, and renewal. Part elegy, part confessional, part battle cry, Last Sext confronts both eternal longing and the mystery of mortality, with language hot, primal, and dark, as Broder’s fans have come to love.

Release Date :  2018-05-11
Description :  Nach einer Überdosis Schlaftabletten erwacht Lucy benebelt und inmitten eines Berges aus puderzuckerbestäubten Donuts in ihrem Auto, ohne genau zu wissen, wo sie sich befindet. Wo befindet man sich überhaupt im Leben, wenn man mit neununddreißig Jahren schon seit einer Ewigkeit über griechische Dichtung promoviert, partout keine Kinder will, frisch getrennt ist und immer dicker und depressiver wird? Eine Liebe-und-Sex-Therapiegruppe in Venice Beach soll für Lucy Antworten auf diese und andere Fragen liefern, genauso wie ihr neuer Tinder-Account. Doch das unfassbarste High erlebt sie am Strand: Ein wunderschöner Meermann taucht aus dem Ozean auf. Alles zuvor Gewesene wird relativ. Ein ehrlicher, komischer und trauriger Roman, der den ewigen Glauben an die Erlösung durch Liebe und Sexualität radikal hinterfragt.

5 So Sad Today. Ensayos íntimos

Author : Melissa Broder
Genre :  Biographies & Memoirs  Books 
Price :  $8.99
Release Date :  2017-03-02
Description :  Melissa Broder, estrella de Twitter con el nombre @SoSadToday, ha fidelizado en los últimos años a más de 400.000 seguidores (de Katy Perry a Frances Bean Cobain, Miley Cyrus o Lena Dunham), se ha ganado el título de «la mujer más deprimente del mundo» con su talento para condensar ansiedades, desengaños, tropiezos y vacíos en 140 caracteres. En los «ensayos íntimos» de <i>So Sad Today</i> reelabora su experiencia del sexo, la muerte, la falta de amor propio, la anorexia, las adicciones, el amor online y, en general, según se ha dicho, «el drama de esperar una respuesta del universo» a través de alguna red social. Su estilo es coloquialmente feroz y a un tiempo arriesgadamente poético, lleno de humor, vergüenza y desvergüenza. Su genial descripción de las limitaciones que se impone y de cómo se las salta todos los días no puede resultarnos ajena.<br /><br />De ella se ha dicho que es heredera de Sylvia Plath. <i>So Sad Today. Ensayos íntimos</i> es un original libro del periodismo confesional (y narcisista) de la era digital y ha tenido una clamorosa acogida en Estados Unidos antes de traducirse al español.<br /><br />Si Melissa Broder no fuera tan jodidamente graciosa, habría estado llorando todo el rato. Amor, sexo, adicciones, enfermedades mentales y traumas se toman de la mano y bailan en círculo uniéndose al ritmo y al ingenio y locura de Melissa llevándonos a ese lugar terrible que llamamos hogar. <i></i><br /><br />Estos ensayos son tristes e incómodos y a la vez preciosos. Y tiene el mérito de mostrar-nos gran parte de lo que es vivir en este mundo ahora mismo. ROXANE GAY, autora best seller del <i>New York Times</i> por <i>Mala Feminista</i>
