Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore presents Sketchtasy


September 29, 2018




Radical Bookfair Pavilion

An urgent, glittering, devastating novel about the perils of queer world-making in the mid-'90s, Sketchtasy tells the story of Alexa, an incisive twenty-one-year-old queen facing everyday brutality with determined nonchalance. Drawn to the ecstasy of drugged-out escapades, Alexa searches for nourishment in a gay culture bonded by clubs and conformity, willful apathy, and the spectre of AIDS. Sketchtasy brings 1990s gay culture startlingly back to life, as Alexa and her friends grapple with the impact of growing up at a time when desire and death are intertwined.
