About The Book:

In The Pisces, main character Lucy is a self-confessed love addict whose main activity has been writing her dissertation on the famously sensual ancient Greek poet Sappho for the past nine years. When she experiences a dramatic breakup with her boyfriend and finds herself lost, she leaves her home in Phoenix, Arizona for Los Angeles to dog-sit for her sister, Annika. While staying in Annika’s glass house in Venice Beach for the summer, Lucy falls in love with a gorgeous swimmer with a supernatural secret.

"In 'The Pisces,' Broder takes her obsessions and gives them a perverted mythological structure, and corrals them within the arbitrary limits of fiction." – Jia Tolentino, The New Yorker
