Ebook description:

In Her Body and Other Parties, Carmen Maria Machado blithely demolishes the arbitrary borders between psychological realism and science fiction, comedy and horror, fantasy and fabulism. While her work has earned her comparisons to Karen Russell and Kelly Link, she has a voice that’s all her personal. In this electrical and provocative debut, Machado bends style to form startling narratives that map the realities of ladies’s lives and the violence visited upon their our bodies. A spouse refuses her husband’s entreaties to take away the inexperienced ribbon from round her neck. A girl recounts her sexual encounters as a plague slowly consumes humanity. A salesperson in a mall makes a horrifying discovery throughout the seams of the shop’s promenade attire. One girl’s surgery-induced weight reduction leads to an undesirable houseguest. And within the bravura novella Especially Heinous, Machado reimagines each episode of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, a present we naively assumed had proven all of it, producing a phantasmagoric police procedural filled with doppelgangers, ghosts, and ladies with bells for eyes. Earthy and otherworldly, antic and horny, queer and caustic, comedian and lethal severe, Her Body and Other Parties swings from horrific violence to probably the most beautiful sentiment. In their explosive originality, these tales enlarge the probabilities of up to date fiction.
