"In recounting one woman’s star-crossed relationship with a folkloric beau, Ms. Broder has crafted a modern-day mythology for women on the verge — if everything on the surface stops making sense, all you need to do is dive deeper.”—The New York Times
“A page turner of a novel…The Pisces is many things: a jaunt in a fabulous voice, a culture critique of Los Angeles, an explicit tour of all kinds of sex (both really good and really bad)…Broder’s voice has a funny, frank Amy Schumer feel to it, injected with moments of a Lydia Davis-type abstraction.”—The Washington Post
" 'The Pisces' convincingly romances the void."—Jia Tolentino, The New Yorker
“The dirtiest, most bizarre, most original works of fiction I’ve read in recent memory."—Vogue.com
“Explosive, erotic, scathingly funny…Its interspecies romantic intrigue buttresses a profound take on connection and longing that digs deep.”—Entertainment Weekly
“Time for the easiest game of ‘if you loved this movie, read this book’ ever: If you loved ‘The Shape of Water,’…you should definitely read The Pisces by Melissa Broder, a book about fish sex…[The Pisces offers] an exploration of how deeply impacted we all are in the corrupted world, and how far we’d have to swim to escape it.”—Huffington Post
“The debut novel by poet and essayist Broder (So Sad Today) is an alternately ribald and poignant fantasy…Broder makes her merman a more complex and believable character than most romantic heroes; her novel is a consistently funny and enjoyable read.”—Publisher's Weekly
"It’s a knife-tip dissection of 21st-century anomie, and its clear-sighted depiction of muddy-headed people makes for bracing reading – like a dip in the freezing, salty sea."—The Guardian
“In her first novel, essayist, poet, and Twitter-star Broder (So Sad Today, 2016; Last Sext, 2016) wraps timeless questions of existence —those that gods and stars have beseeched to answer for millennia—in the weirdest, sexiest, and most appealing of modern packaging. Brilliant and delightful.”—Booklist, starred
“Broder delivers her signature hilarity, intelligence, and spot-on examination of the human (et al.) condition.”—Marie Claire
“This anticipated first novel from poet/essayist Broder is hilariously narrated…Those wo take the plunge will be rewarded with a wild ride from a narrator whose sardonic outlook reveals profound truths about the nature of the self.”—Library Journal
“The sex scenes are often funny (“his balls were delicious, like raw oysters”), but Broder balances the weirdness of merman erotica with a realistic look at depression and recovery. The Pisces is perfect for anyone who wishes The Shape of Water as more explicit, but is also great for those looking for a novel that gets real about mental health, with a little fantasy thrown in.”—Bust Magazine
