Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore's Sketchtasy is an NPR Best Book of the Year
All hail Sketchtasy! NPR names Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore's incendiary novel one of the best of 2018: "Sketchtasy is a powerful firecracker of a novel; it's not just one of the best books of the year, it's an instant classic of queer literature."
Sketchtasy, set in 1995, is about a young queen named Alexa who navigates the cruel streets of Boston with her friends amid the spectre of the AIDS crisis. In its review, The Millions said: "If there's any justice in this world, Sketchtasy will become the definitive novel of life in Boston ... It slyly trades 1990s nostalgia for a queer narrative that is mesmerizing and heartbreaking all at once."
