Pity the Animal, a chapbook-length essay by Chelsea Hodson, explores the concept of human submission and commodification by way of window displays, wild animals, performance art, and sugar daddy dating websites. How much can a body endure? Almost everything.
"Bracingly good—wild and chiseled, both. Hodson’s bold experiments and assertions feel refreshing and welcome."
—Maggie Nelson, author of Bluets and The Argonauts
"One of the best literary works I’ve encountered this year... immeasurably powerful... and hits harder than many works ten times its length."
