I like radical books, especially nonfiction but fiction is good too. Feminist, environmentalist, anti-racist, history of atrocities and struggles, indigenous, sociology, etc. Obscure is good! I'd hope to get something I never could have expected.
Don't get this!
Please nothing "sex positive", postmodernist or trans activist.
I strongly prefer something from a woman author!
owen1218's Secret Santa is janineknapp. Help janineknapp pick the right book.

ChessFanatic: A female writer that writes "Obscure" books: Gina Ranalli
She has roughly 10 or so books out. I've read 4 of them. She's good if you are into weird stuff:
Chemical Gardens - Basically the Wizard of Oz on drugs
Wall of Kiss - A novella where a woman falls in love with the wall in her apartment (or house, don't recall which)
Suicide Girls In The Afterlife - Been a while and I don't recall which other book this is a weird version of, but I want to say it's tied to something like "Staircase to Heaven", or something like that?
Mother Puncher - A book on population control in a very weird manner. A man is given the job to throw a punch at anybody that gives birth. You can have children all you want, but each time, after delivery, this hired guy has to punch you, as a way of discouraging you from having too many children - again, a very weird manner of population control.
