Ache asked writers to explore the ways in which illness and pain cause estrangement from one's own body - and Cusp was born.

    a really wide range of interesting, sometimes spooky, personal, beautiful writing on pain, illness, bodies and feminism. definitely mythical and magical vibes ! most of it was really great and thought provoking, I really enjoyed the mix of short stories, poetry, and short nonfic offerings. quite a bit of the the fiction felt a bit like, ok I get it you read Paradise Rot and/or The Undying, and some of the feminism felt lazy. I kind of found myself wishing it had MORE range as a lot of it felt li a really wide range of interesting, sometimes spooky, personal, beautiful writing on pain, illness, bodies and feminism. definitely mythical and magical vibes ! most of it was really great and thought provoking, I really enjoyed the mix of short stories, poetry, and short nonfic offerings. quite a bit of the the fiction felt a bit like, ok I get it you read Paradise Rot and/or The Undying, and some of the feminism felt lazy. I kind of found myself wishing it had MORE range as a lot of it felt like it came from a similar perspective (both stylistically but also re:intersectionality)? but all in all a very worthwhile read of a collection that offers a lot interesting frames for important content. (also the last piece in the book was a gut punch, so sad)
