A flytrap chair, dozens of cra-cra clones, and portals into the multiverse…
Ava and Jules are chasing a grandmother who has stumbled through the breach… The freshly broken-up queer couple take a futuro-compass into the void that has appeared in the middle of their build-your-own Swedish furniture store. Steeped in bureaucratic corporate culture, relationship possibilities, and a good dose of wanderlust, Finna took me to a funny, exotic place. A place where I was able to contemplate the capitalism of box stores and the boxes we put people inside. It may be pronouns or ‘lovers’ or ‘friends,’ this short, yet powerful novella made me think.
Cipri has the deft skill of weaving characterization into their plotting. I loved the banter, but that sarcasm does cut. Humorous and biting. Spend an afternoon or morning or night in this author’s wickedly wacky world. I don’t think you will be disappointed.
