In Charlotte Eichler’s debut pamphlet, a young couple wonder whether family life would be easier if they were cuttlefish, and two girls try all they can to read the future. There are explorations of gendered violence and the silences within families: a daughter and her father communicate through moths, women pose in bikinis to advertise coffins, and a valkyrie leaves her husband. Ambivalent interactions with the natural world are woven throughout the book: a child discovers her power over creatures smaller than herself, and polar bears overrun an Alaskan town.
