This black hole of a book, I say with the most tenderness, absorbed me. Cassie is a witness to her own life as much as she is witness to people lighting themselves on fire, shitting in the street, our impending virus, California wildfires, Silicon Valley toxic work hustle, and the black hole that expands and contracts above her head. I typically don't like office place narratives or how writers have been writing the pandemic narrative but Etter does so beautifully and devastatingly.
