“What I never understood until recently is that, unfortunately, your body belongs to you and nobody else. You can give other people permission to touch your body or insert themselves into it. You can put food and drugs in your body. You can mutilate your body or ask others to mutilate it for you. You can be overly cautious with your body. You can feel, temporarily, as if your body has become an inanimate object that exists solely for the pleasure of another person. For someone who hates their own body, any one of those things can feel freeing, but you will never fully unload the burden of having a body onto another person.”
— Mira Gonzalez, "Love Letter"

Sorry House Makes Printing Error, Local Man Outraged
Only moments ago Sorry House, an indie publisher based out of Brooklyn, made the announcement that due to a manufacturing error the next 85 copies of Mira Gonzalez’s critically acclaimed book i will never be beautiful enough to make us beautiful together would be bound upside down.
The news was a surprise to all and caused one local man to proclaim, “I am outraged.”
