Some reviews of Beauty Talk & Monsters:

"In Beauty Talk & Monsters, Tupitsyn tosses her never-quite-named (but seemingly consistent) female narrator between ages, cities and especially men in this lovely, unconventional debut, but gives her an unalloyed solace in the form of cinema...The narrator's salvation and distraction are consistently found in film: she sees one lover through the prism of Mean Streets; wonders if her neediness equates her to the shark in Jaws; and riffs on the macho pull of Jack Nicholson or potential insecurities of Tom Cruise. She's also fascinated with the idea of beauty and societal perceptions of women, famous and not, and shares her thoughts on cultural touchstones like Nicole Kidman's aesthetic trajectory (once "a feral garden, now a sewing kit"). Other pieces here deftly blend real and imagined Hollywood, film theory and thematic narrative, as in "Kleptomania," where the narrator looks on as Judy Garland, Diane Keaton and Tippi Hedren's s Hitchcock character, "Marnie," compare notes on their lives in a bar. The more experimental pieces will be buttery popcorn for silver-screen junkies, but the more traditional, detail-rich stories (like "The Ghost of Berlin") make a narrator who's waiting for "someone or something to stick" memorable."--Publisher's Weekly

"The experience of reading Beauty Talk & Monsters is humid, intimate, and juicy; like spying through a window at a neighbor's television set, it provides both the voyeuristic pleasure of watching a stranger's activity and the familiar flicker of a well-known film, now playing in a stranger's psyche."
-- Michelle Tea, San Francisco Bay Chronicle

“Masha Tupitsyn, whose brilliant Beauty Talk & Monsters collapses and flits between memoir, film criticism, and fiction, looks at gender construction and desire as filtered through the movies in a way that is different from the way most feminist and queer theorists are reading heteronormativity in pop culture right now. It's almost like, where lots of femin
