"Nobody Passes" is a collection of essays that confronts and challenges the very notion of belonging. By examining the perilous intersections of identity, categorization, and community, contributors challenge societal mores and countercultural norms. "Nobody Passes" explores and critiques the various systems of power seen (or not seen) in the act of " passing." In a pass-fail situation, standards for acceptance may vary, but somebody always gets trampled on. This anthology seeks to eliminate the pressure to pass and thereby unearth the delicious and devastating opportunities for transformation that might create. Mattilda, aka Matt Bernstein Sycamore, has a history of editing anthologies based on brazen nonconformity and gender defiance. Mattilda sets out to ask the question, " What lies are people forced to tell in order to gain acceptance as 'real'." The answers are as varied as the life experiences of the writers who tackle this urgent and essential topic.
'A bitingly funny, and occasionally heartbreaking, look at mental illness, love and relationships' The New York Times'Razor-sharp, astutely observed and acerbically funny' Guardian'A psychotic breakdown is not often the stuff of comedy but Binnie Kirshenbaum makes it so without belittling the subject.' Daily Mail'Darkly funny' RedBunny is sick to the back teeth of - well, everything, really, but especially New Year's Eve. It's nothing more than forced fellowship, mandatory fun, and paper hats. And yet Bunny finds herself out at another New Year's dinner with her husband and a group of particularly irritating friends. It's really no wonder that this provokes an extreme action that lands her in the psych ward of a prestigious New York hospital.Refusing treatment, Bunny passes the time chronicling the lives of her fellow "lunatics" and writing a novel about what brought her there. Her story is a brilliant, brutally funny insight dive into the disordered mind of someone who sees the world all too clearly.Propelled by razor-sharp humour and rife with pinpoint observations, Kirshenbaum examines what it means to be unloved and loved, to succeed and fail, to be impervious and raw. A bravura literary performance from one of America's finest writers.
