What if you could rewrite your relationship, again and again, until it works out?

‘A cause for celebration’ GEORGE SAUNDERS
‘Exhilaratingly good’ KELLY LINK
‘A stunner of a debut’ NANA KWAME ADJEI-BRENYAH

When Myriam and Allison fall in love at a show in a run-down punk house, their relationship begins to unfold through a series of hypotheticals:

What if they became mothers by finding a baby in an alley?
What if the only cure for Myriam’s depression was Allison’s flesh?
What if they were B-list celebrities, famous for writing a book about building healthy lesbian relationships?

How much darker - or sexier - would their dynamic be if one were a power-hungry CEO, and the other her lowly employee?

From the fantasies of early romance to the slow encroaching of violence that unravels the fantasy, each reality builds to complete a brilliant, painfully funny portrait of love’s many promises and perils.
