HER BODY AND OTHER PARTIES: STORIES – Malaprops Bookstore & Cafe

THIS MONTH’S #1 INDIE NEXT LIST PICK…

By Carmen Maria Machado

(Graywolf Press 9781555977887, $16, trade paper)

“Reading the stories in Her Body and Other Parties has been among the greatest literary pleasures of 2017 for me. Carmen Maria Machado writes with fearless exploration, precision, and tenderness, which would prompt envy if gratitude and admiration weren’t first to arrive on scene. From the lovely apocalyptic love story ‘Inventory’ to the dizzying and original ‘Especially Heinous,’ Machado’s work is curious, inventive, and thrilling. It’s feminist and pop culture, classic and weird; the stories are complex and the characters are haunting. What a debut!”
