Overview

The unexpected side effects of Leah Nielsen's Side Effects May Include's sometimes long-lined, sometimes fragmented, often graphically depicted stanzas, with their harrowing honesty, poignant declarations, and delicious dark humor, include everything from pleasure to, quite frankly, awe. The undauntable human spirit is poetically at work here. There is simply no other way to explain the courage and lucidity it takes to write about physical pain while enduring it. I love this book. It is gorgeous and fun and heartbreaking, a profound tale of pluck and transformation. --Maureen Seaton, author of Fibonacci Batman: New and Selected (1991-2011)
