Parasite Life review

A thoughtful and interesting review of my book- exploring specifically the lesbian themes.


I’ll give credit to Dalpe in being this ambitious with her debut. Themes of consent, abuse, parental neglect, and toxicity abound, and they’re written extremely well. When Jane fucks up, realizing or not realizing, the narrative does not play around, and it does not tell you that it’s okay because, hey, they’re in love. Dalpe also refuses to give easy answers to any of these problems. The book does feature scenes of parental abuse and suicidal idealization, but Dalpe also provides resources for those young readers that may be suffering from experiences featured in the book, which is a breath of fresh air in this genre.
