The boundaries between realist and fabulist, literary and speculative are shattered in this remarkable debut collection for readers of Carmen Maria Machado, André Alexis, and Angélique Lalonde
A girl born in a small, unnamed pueblo is blessed — or cursed — with the ability to produce valuable gems from bodily fluids. A tired wife and mother escapes the confines of her oppressive life and body by shapeshifting into a cloud. A girl reckons with her father's death and changing familial dynamics while slowly, mysteriously losing her physical senses.
Infused with keen insight and presented in startling prose, the stories in this dark, magnetic collection by newcomer Rebecca Hirsch Garcia invite the reader into an uncanny world out of step with reality while exploring the personal and interpersonal in a way that is undeniably, distinctly human.
