Published: MCD x FSG Originals - May 14th, 2019

TRUFFLEPIG is pure, psychedelic, Tex-Mex mythos. Flores wrote the novel in a 3-month fever dream, hammered out on a mechanical typewriter in late 2014. Five years later, Flores' parallel universe contains insight on the border that feels eerily prophetic. Listen to the 9-song Spotify platlist that accompanies the novel!

Frank, funny, exact, and exposed. Eileen Myles is unapologetically strange, unapologetically queer, and unapologetically New York. An essential, human writer.

Deliciously disturbing, surreal, and stunning. The narrator, Abby, is simultaneously horrifying and relatable, slithering through seclusion, obsession, maina, and manipulation toward her inevitable destiny. This narrative is a stylistic and artistic marvel - it shimmers in its own peculiar darkness. Perfectly twisted.
