New in Paperback: Katie Arnoldi's CHEMICAL PINK
New in paperback this month is Katie Arnoldi's cult classic - and Los Angeles Times bestseller - Chemical Pink. This critically acclaimed novel, set in the world of female bodybuilding, has been called a "modern gothic comedy of obsession" (Vanity Fair). The author, a former Southern California bodybuilding champion herself, offers a mesmerizing portrait of two obsessed personalities and the perverse relationship that draws them together. In a fascinating Q&A on her own website, Katie Arnoldi talks about the novel's main characters, Charles and Aurora, the culture of female bodybuilding, and really weird sex.
