A collection of three satirical short stories examining the different social expectations, practices, and prejudices surrounding love, sex, and relationships. Lesbians turn frog princes into bottles of beer. Cupid functions in a syncretic religion. Gay classical musicians struggle to navigate the cherished, operatic, heteronormative traditions of love. Each story is remarkably experimental and features forms and subverted tropes borrowed from myth, music, and contemporary internet culture. Despite the absurdity, these stories remain relevant.
