THE GARLAND is an archaeological love story / a story about falling in love with archaeology.

It weaves together prose fragments of an education in Ancient Greek culture, a lesbian infatuation with one ancient statue, and a few years of gender-fuckery. Within are meditations on long teen-girlhood, joining the Sappho fandom, t4t love and anti-memoir transition, burial and unburial, queer museum visits, study-abroad heartbreak, products from your local mall, purloined favorite textbook pages, and plenty of Mediterranean sunsets.
