Chapbook

MASH / The A3 Review / 2019

"Set out over 13 panels as a choose-your-own adventure narrative, written in lyrical and unflinching prose, Lena Ziegler's MASH is a chapbook about attraction, obsession, sex and writing." - The A3 Review

"12. You think about how you feel about the boy from your fiction class, how your skin reacts to the sight of him – your pores opening and closing like fish gills, breathing in the  smell of his soap, his gentleness – and you remember that every boy you touch has their own version of this – the great, wonderful, unattainable girl, maybe from their geometry class, or bio lab – and whenever you settle for them, they are settling for you, and your bodies stacked are just bones settling, sinking into the grave of each others’ flesh, worn out and half-shaved in the hope that someone else’s hands were touching it instead." [extract from MASH by Lena Ziegler]
