About the Author
I am the bags of fat burned off during liposuction. I am the clumps of hair that fall out when bleached and straightened with chemicals. I am the excess cartilage ripped out during nose jobs. I am the puss-filled infections that grow around butt injections. I am the raw nerves that are scraped by veneers. I am the gnarled toes and bunions brought on by years of wearing high-heels. When you see a meteor shoot across the sky, I am the chunks of rock that plummet to earth. I am Stefani Bulsara!
"An entertaining, uncompromising, often farcical near-future tale that revels in pop culture." - Kirkus Reviews
"Fun, lyrical, and dazzling… Radio Ga Ga is a journey through a dystopian world that outlines a critical perspective of the current state of humanity, and how society’s willful ignorance of the forces that threaten its existence leads to the end of the human race.
What makes this work of art truly unique is Bulsara’s execution of the narrative, which is rich with historical facts and science, yet employs pop culture, pop music, and science fiction to make the reading quirky, light and entertaining. Radio Ga Ga is full of vibrant characters and is as highly educational as it is fun. Accessible to a wide variety of readers, it is a deeply contemplating call to action, with the hope of avoiding a nihilistic future that is as absurd as it is frightening." - Marla M. Good Reads
"The quintessential dystopian novel of our time. Radio Ga Ga explores some expected topics in new emotionally and intellectually complicated ways. It may also inspire you to reflect on life choices and societal norms you take for granted. A perfect fusion of substantive and playful. When it's derivative, it's well placed and brings the levity that makes this book such a page-turner. If you read DListed, watch RuPaul's Drag Race, or swoon for Neil deGrasse Tyson interviews, you will enjoy this book." - Maureen T. Good Reads
