Combining feminist theories, X-Files fandom, and memoir, Enjoy Me among My Ruins draws together a kaleidoscopic archive of Juniper Fitzgerald's experiences as a queer sex-working mother. Plumbing the major events that shaped her life, and interspersing her childhood letters written to cult icon Gillian Anderson, this experimental manifesto contends with dominant narratives placed upon marginalized people, ultimately rejecting a capitalist system that demands our purity and submission over our survival.

Juniper Fitzgerald is a mother, sex worker, and academic based in the Midwest. Her children's book, How Mamas Love Their Babies, was published by the Feminist Press in 2018 and was the first to feature a sex-working parent. Beyond her scholarly work, she has contributed to We Too: Essays on Sex Work and Survival and her writing has appeared in Tits and Sass, Mutha magazine, and the Rumpus. She holds a PhD in sociology and is a lifelong Gillian Anderson fan.
