Publisher's summary

Tess welds metal. Bibi molds flesh. Together, they make art that moves, dances, burns, and bleeds, and the Surgeons of the Demolition become the hottest ticket in town. But Bibi wants more, always more, no matter who gets hurt. And Tess needs to burn, no matter what.

Thirty years ago, "Skin" changed the landscape of dark fiction forever. And now the girls are back in town.

Critic reviews

"A dark and frightening work by a major talent whose prose reads like a collaboration between Clive Barker and William S. Burroughs. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)

"Humorless novel about art punks in an unnamed present-day city...the novel, like the art of the characters it portrays, is a sustained exercise in style over substance." (Publishers Weekly)

"The language Koja employs is fresh and astonishing, harsh yet beautiful." (Washington Post Book World)
