Description


A thief steals the air from a room. Children invent a nursery rhyme to make sense of their fate, and a band of girls rots from the outside in. These characters stumble through joy and murder and confusion, only to survive and wait for the next catastrophe to arrive. Moments so brief and disturbing you can't afford to look away. Jac Jamc's affecting stories mine the territory between what is real and what it means to create understanding.

Jac Jemc's "My Only Wife" was a finalist for the 2013 PEN/Bingham Prize for Debut Fiction. A web editor for "Hobart" and poetry editor at "decomP," she lives in Chicago, Illinois.
