Whether you’re looking for witches, slashers or ghosts, these picks make for perfect reading this spooky season.
My Own Worst Enemy is a gift for the butch community, offering up an unheard of dose of representation. The second of Lily Lindon’s novels, the book follows the drama filled, mid-twenties existence of aspiring actor and butch lesbian, Emmy Clooney (no relation). Emmy’s trials and tribulations, and there are many of both, through the testing world of drama school, auditions and type-casting she develops a love-hate obsession with fellow butch and rival thespian/love interest, Mae Jones. What follows is a hilariously witty read that perfectly taps into the authentic anxieties of queer dating, friendships and careers.
