the unsuitableThe Unsuitable by Molly Pohlig (Henry Holt and Co., April 14, 2020)

(CW: Self-harm) Iseult (think ‘insult’ without the ‘n’) Wince is a young woman on the verge of being branded a spinster. Iseult’s mother died giving birth to her, but she hasn’t left Iseult’s life completely: she lives in a scar on Iseult’s neck and talks to her. Iseult has always found her mother’s presence a comfort, but now Iseult wants to be independent, of both her parents. Her father wants her out of the house, but his attempts to marry her off have been unsuccessful, partly because Iseult likes to tell guests about her neck-mother. (Neck-Mother is the name of my new band, I called it first.) So her father is down to the last eligible bachelor for Iseult. He’s a man with silver skin, and Iseult wonders if he might be the answer she’s been waiting for. The Unsuitable is a fiercely feminist Gothic novel of manners and body horror, that portrays spinsterhood, self-image, and mental illness in Victorian times in fresh light.
