ISBN: 9781400078370
Published: Vintage - January 4th, 2005

Out is a cat-and-mouse thriller that follows a group of unlikely criminals—factory workers in Japan who band together to elaborately cover up a crime and protect a woman who killed her abusive husband. By turns gory, heartwarming, and excruciatingly suspenseful. I’ll never look at a boxed lunch the same again.

I naively thought I understood feminism and how it operates in the world, but then I picked up this book. A gift for the curious, for those people who are looking to dig deeper into their own assumptions and to amplify the voices of Black and Brown feminist thinkers.

Published: Dorothy a Publishing Project - September 15th, 2020

The third book in Leger's uncategorizable triptych turns its lens onto Italian performance artist Pippa Bacca who was tragically murdered while hiking across Europe in a wedding dress to promote world peace. This harrowing story, told in Leger's agile, exploratory and gorgeously labyrinthine prose, raises questions about womanhood, justice and what it means to make art in the world. To be consumed in one sitting and mulled over forever.

Horror for the reality tv era, this novel scared the hell out of me. The way Paul Tremblay layers past and present is brilliant. Reading this book is like entering a crumbling old haunted house, only you soon realize you're not sure what's real and what has been engineered.
