I believe that every young woman should read The Pisces by Melissa Broder, which, put simply is about a woman who falls in love with a merman. Every young woman should read this book because of it’s depressingly artful representation of obsession and love. Lucy, the main character, brings to life the angst and confusion that comes when your identity is wrapped up in who you love. Seeing the extremes of Lucy’s existential predicaments, readers can find themselves: obsessively checking to see if Tinder Date #444 texted back; leaving homegirl on read, just because you can. Every one can find a little of themselves in Lucy, and maybe, just maybe, they’ll also fall in love with a merman (who knows?).
