Her Body And Other Parties

by Carmen Maria Machado
£8.99   paperback  Profile Books Ltd (Serpent (2019)

Her Body And Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado SHORTLISTED FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FICTION PRIZE 2017
SHORTLISTED FOR THE INTERNATIONAL DYLAN THOMAS PRIZE 2018
 
A prize-winning, genre-bending collection of short stories which has already achieved cult status.
 
In her provocative debut, Carmen Maria Machado demolishes the borders between magical realism and science fiction, comedy and horror, fantasy and fabulism.
 
A wife refuses her husband's entreaties to remove the mysterious green ribbon from around her neck. A woman recounts her sexual encounters as a plague spreads across the earth. A salesclerk in a mall makes a horrifying discovery about a store's dresses. One woman's surgery-induced weight loss results in an unwanted house guest.
 
A dark, shimmering slice into womanhood, Her Body and Other Parties is wicked and exquisite.
