The Meat and Spirit Plan is an abstract novel brilliantly written by Selah Saterstrom, author of The Pink Institution. The nameless main character gives her story in edgy snapshots, which catches you up in the rhythm of an often disturbing and bumpy ride. The style reminds one of the free flowing way our deepest thoughts run when residing somewhere between wakefulness and sleep.
The Meat and Spirit Plan shows one girl's entry into womanhood through a series of damaging relationships and her eventual reliance on drugs. The main character struggles to surface in this fiercely written story, and whether you've lived similar experiences or not, you'll find yourself identifying with her over and over again.
