We were so excited to see Eugen Bacon’s forthcoming Claiming T-Mo making waves over at Weekend Notes with this glorious review. Counting the days for this book to hit the shelves.
With her literary agility and avant-garde imagination, Eugen Bacon creates a wild ride through multiple worlds and characters, both human and supernatural, with a textuality that is complex and diverse using poetry, lyricism, linguistic invention and surreal and vivid description. Her use of multisensory imagery and sound in language creates a virtual reality where you can smell, feel, taste and touch every detail of the terrain and the creatures within them. Everything is turned on its head, especially, time, form and memory.– MISTRESS OF CULTURE VULTURES, WEEKEND NOTES

In this lush interplanetary tale, an immortal priest flouts the conventions of a matriarchal society by choosing a name for his child. The act initiates chaos that splits the boy in two, unleashing a Jekyll-and-Hyde child upon the universe: named T-Mo by his mother and Odysseus by his father. The story unfolds through the eyes of these three distinctive women: Silhouette, Salem and Myra - mother, wife, and daughter. As they struggle to confront their fears and navigate the treacherous paths to love and accept T-Mo/Odysseus and themselves, the darkness in Odysseus urges them to unbearable choices that threaten their very existence.More info →
