Finally getting around to this collection of short stories that was Kelsey's Staff Pick when I first started here & enjoyed it very much! Yukiko Motoya seamslessly constructs her own waterslide of fiction and laughs while riding down with her inflatable doughnut. These stories are just the right amount of absurdity to provide temporary respite while on the Gold Line.
An layered exploration of the many margins of familial history.
This collection, translated by Anne Boyer and Cassandra Gillig, is a moving introductin to Vestrini's militant resistance. Her poetry is honest and vulnerable, but pointed enough to spark a blaze.
Navigating being a grad student is already so taxing, but with the suicide of a friend, it becomes unimaginable. Anelise Chen's book is a beautifully moving combination of memoir and sports theory. I've never gasped so much while reading a book. I've never been so intrigued by sports.
Kathryn Scanlan's The Dominant Animal is a hushed and beautifully refined collection of short stories. These vignettes, often only two pages long, are simultaneously camling and unsettling.
