Sketchtasy takes place in that late-night moment when everything comes together, and everything falls apart: an urgent, glittering, devastating novel about the perils of queer world-making in the mid-'90s. Set in Boston, 1995, Alexa, an incisive twenty-one-year-old queen, faces everyday brutality with determined nonchalance, negotiating past and present traumas with a scathing critique of the world. Drawn to the ecstasy of drugged-out escapades, Alexa searches for nourishment in a gay culture bonded by clubs and conformity, wilful apathy, and the spectre of AIDS.
