"At once timely and timeless."
"A wonderfully inventive novel about love, illness, and the devastating loneliness of isolation."
"Evocative. . . . Moore shines when channeling readers' collective fears for the future."
"Carley Moore's voice is a necessary joy in our current exacting times. With each of her works, her skills get sharper and her heart cracks wider–Panpocalypse is a masterpiece of fierce queer honesty, taking on the intricacies of our bodies and our minds, the city and the state, with fearless passion and bold, political intelligence. We need this book right now, and we'll need it in all the nows to come."
–Michelle Tea, author of Against Memoir: Complaints, Confessions & Criticisms
"Panpocalypse is a rousing, eerily enchanting, and verve-filled exploration of love and life in the midst of brittle collapse and upheaval. Moore's sharp and provocative voice adds much-needed complexity to the public discourse about the impact of COVID-19 on queer and disabled communities."
–Jamia Wilson, author of Young Gifted and Black
"Here's the sexy, sad, queer, disabled, time-bending romp through the bleak pandemic landscape that you've been waiting for! No one lays herself as bare on the page as Carley Moore, and Panpocalypse is her most naked work to date. Whoever you are, and wherever you need your bike to take you, this book will speak to the universal need for love, touch, and acceptance in the hardest of times."
–Lynn Melnick, author of Refusenik
is the pandemic novel we all need–honest, raw, sexy, sad, joyful, and so, so smart. I couldn't put this book down. The prose crackles, the story line shimmers; it has the energy of a queer, disabled Elena Ferrante living in modern-day New York City. There's gritty reality, and there's also the most fun escapist fantasy (and time travel!). Panpocalypse
is a must-read for anyone who has yearned for connection in quarantined times." –Amy Shearn, author of Unseen City
"Carley Moore's stunning novel captures the haunted dreams of our present world and the dire imaginings of an uncertain future. With the main character's bicycle rides through an anxious and lonely city, Moore tells a story of queer longing that moves between past and present, imagination and memory, all the while taking pleasure and grief and hope by the hand and bringing them along as a mooring against social decay. This is a powerful story, naked and mournful, but also sharp and sensual and playful. It's a book that will linger with you for weeks and months and years." –James Polchin, author of Indecent Advances: A Hidden History of True Crime and Prejudice Before Stonewall
