About this deal

Succulent and Sensual, Jessica Andrews is back once again depicting another turbulent and transitory life of a young 20-something woman. another book about a young woman in her 20s figuring life out and being self-destructive (do i read anything else?

irritating pages of fretting over “wanting too much while afraid of not wanting”;afraid of not asking for what you want; afraid of verbalizing , then internally verbalizing everything ….honestly i was just bored the whole time and a bit shocked it was so focused on and ed without any mention of it on the blurb? Like Saltwater (also by Andrews, also loved), Milk Teeth has a dreamlike and meandering character-based plot. Our protagonist observes the other freelancers she works with, sipping coffee, eating expensive pastries, complaining about their treatment in a banal, half hearted manner. I watch you wheel your suitcase onto the train in your black boots and dirty black jacket, black curls falling into your eyes like an alley cat. At the time the author of Saltwater, which I had read and loved, was living in Barcelona, working on her next novel.

This is because, unlike her own, ‘their needs were thoughtless because they had the means to meet them. The streets are viscous with heat and piss, bodies spilling from doorways, wrapped in sickly tendrils of weed. I'm writing in my journal, wondering who collects the oranges when they fall from the trees and what happens to them afterwards.When a copy of Milk Teeth was in my postbox on Friday morning I honestly felt like I’d won the lottery and had to explain to my parents who were looking at me with rather great levels of concern what this book was and why I was so worked up over it.
