A queer post-modern tarot-esque deck that serves up hilarious and sensual fodder for foresight and insight that comes from the often overlooked encounters in life. Visual wordplay lays bare a paranoid awareness of how impossibly exposed we are, yet makes clear that, in this, we are not alone.

— Lynne Tillman
