Pickle Me This loves Monoceros's alternate universe

By Kerry Clare
Pickle Me This blog
July 14 2011

Suzette Mayr's Monoceros takes place in an alternate reality, albeit a reality that very much resembles our own -- high school is a nightmare, students are bullied to death for being gay, men and women can lose their jobs for being gay, teen girls are vicious, adults are just as lost as the kids are, and the only difference between the two is that the former have given up searching for meaning.

Bookside Table reviews Monoceros

Bookside Table blog
June 28 2011

"The Unicorns Are Coming."

As you can probably guess from the title, and the immensely enjoyable book trailer, Monoceros has something to do with Unicorns. And it does. But that something, the something that Suzette Mayr is doing with Unicorns, has nothing to do with meme culture, with juvenalia, or with twee. Instead, Mayr's talking about anatomically correct Unicorns. These are desirous and righteous beasts, and they rampage through the novel with all of the swagger and anxiety of adolescent libido.
