Are you feeling trashy? Because that’s how you attract bears.
As featured on The Elegant Criminal Society tumblr: In 1976, an acclaimed Canadian author named Marian Engel wrote an award-winning novel.
This is a real goddamn thing. You can buy it on Amazon, where it has a classy new cover and it’s blurbed by none other than Margaret Atwood:
Bear is a strange and wonderful book,
plausible as kitchens, but shapely as a folktale,
and with the same disturbing resonance.
–Margaret Fucking Atwood
I thought I was bringing the weird with my fetish erotic romance novella Yellow Summer. Now I know I didn’t bring nearly enough weird. No wonder Marian Engel is the acclaimed author, and I’m making bear jokes.
