Her Body and Other Parties
A prize-winning, genre-bending collection of short stories that has already achieved cult status, Her Body and Other Parties is unique, unsettling and totally original. Carmen Maria Machado demolishes the borders between magical realism and science fiction, comedy and horror, fantasy and fabulism. Bodies become inconsequential, humans become monstrous, and anger becomes erotic. A dark, shimmering slice into womanhood, Her Body and Other Parties is wicked and exquisite.
