“In an era when most of us are desensitized to the most taboo topics, writer Sophie Saint Thomas still manages to find subjects that seem pretty shocking (or, at the very least, you may not send many of her articles to your mom). With regular bylines at Vice and Broadly, she has spent the summer writing about people with surprising interests—couples who get off on tattooing each other, real-life vampires who search for human blood, and neo-pagans who concoct love potions for the bedroom. But Saint Thomas is able to write about her subjects without an exploitative streak, which is perhaps the toughest skill of all: to make the extraordinary somehow ordinary—amusingly titillating and recognizably human all at once.” – Brooklyn Magazine
