Touch him and she'll break your arms." Heart-rending, hilarious, giddy, and compassionate, Maggie Robbins's novel in verse tracks a blundering bombshell as she risks all, ricocheting from man to man, place to place, through a haze of sensuality, spirituality, serendipity, and psychosis. In its own singsong rhythm-the "crazy beat" of Suzy's unforgettable life-Suzy Zeus Gets Organized chronicles a furious odyssey from Astoria to Astroland-by way of such pit stops as Berlin, the Big Easy, Buddhism, Barbie, and the Bible-that leaves Suzy, although in the same town, in a somewhat better state. Excerpted in Andrew Solomon's bestselling The Noonday Demon, this marvelously told story of a rowdy city girl bent on finding inner harmony will delight readers everywhere.
