- This book is very sexual and queer.
- Sappho, WA, is a ghost town.
- It is set in the wilderness: people are crossing streams, having sex in the forest, carrying guns around, etc. Sappho in Sappho!
- This book is trying to offer a counter to the ways in which white people – especially women and queer folks – try to use our minoritized sexualities and genders to shirk complicity with settler colonialism. Instead, this book offers another way of reflecting on our present location and our relationships to history, suggesting ways of going into, rather than getting out of rightful guilt.
