The Title Of This Book
Is An Inside Joke

Sophia Katz

$12.00 Out of stock

I am a piece of shit genius and
I don’t know what to do.



“Seems very: internet, of the Zeitgeist, stream of consciousness, #based, etc. I’m not mad at it.”



“thank you and your publisher for sending me this and other books. i enjoyed your book a lot, good job. some of my favorite lines:  ‘I wish I could drink this bottle of Febreze sleep serenity’, ‘There is a finite amount of money….’, ‘It takes so much longer to become 3 digits of age than it does to reach 2.’ and ‘I will never see my face in the flesh, only it’s replication.’”




The Title Of This Book Is An Inside Joke isn’t quite a collection of poems, a novella or a diary, but something in between. Sophia Katz’s debut collection unfolds in a kind of real-time intimacy, through contemporary narratives that are at times funny, at times heart-breaking, and filled with interesting observations, brutal honesty and quick wit. A wonderful and totally engrossing reading experience.


Sophia Katz lives in Toronto, Ontario. Her writing has been published on Medium, Everyday Genius, Hobart, Electric Cereal, That Lit Site, The Bohemyth and has captured the attention of Dazed Digital, Rhizome, Flare, Fanzine, Flavorwire and Gawker. This is her first published book.

Press & Reviews


“A witty, intimate experience of contemporary malaise.”

Largehearted Boy, “Books of the week”


“What’s great about Sophia’s work and herself as an artist is that she’s so polarizing, whether through her writing, music, paintings, or just dipping crucifixes into jars of piss.”

Alt Citizen


“Through sarcasm, frankness and overall badassery, sophia katz has put together a book of poems and stories that can only feel genuine.”
