"Scandal’s prose is direct and uncompromising, but the true beauty of Jigsaw Youth comes from the fact that she manages to blend together sexuality, pain, the importance of memories, and Otherness in a way that said things act as the narrative’s cohesive elements while simultaneously making it clear that they are all much bigger than the narrative framework in which they are presented. In a way, this short novel is the literary equivalent of a perfect Riot Grrrl song; strong, loud, clear, and possessing a strange, lingering power that makes the reader aware of having read something meaningful."
Jigsaw Youth made it into Verbicide Magazine today. A huge thank you to Gabino Iglesias for reading, reviewing, being awesome, and helping spread the word. Cerveza y tacos next time I see you, brotha.
