Publisher's Summary

In her electric fourth collection, Melissa Broder penetrates the itch of existence and explores numberless deaths: the annihilation of self, the bereavement of love, the destruction of fantasy, the transmutation, even, of our ideas of dying.
One of the New Yorker's Books We Loved in 2016

What emerges is an infinite series of false endings - each a trap door containing the possibility for alchemy, rebirth, and renewal. Part elegy, part confessional, part battle cry, Last Sext confronts both eternal longing and the mystery of mortality, with language hot, primal, and dark, as Broder's fans have come to love.

Beautiful and heavy..

Melissa Broder's dramatic performance perfectly fits her thoughtful, original collection of poems. These poems are every bit as provocative as the title might suggest.

There's a lot here to mull over. Be ready to make full use of Audible's 30-second rewind feature.

I highly recommend this! Give it a shot.
