Inside this book
“The stories in Her Body and Other Parties vibrate with originality, queerness, sensuality and the strange. Her voracious imagination and extraordinary voice beautifully bind these stories about fading women and the end of the world and men who want more when they’ve been given everything and bodies, so many human bodies taking up space and straining the seams of skin in impossible, imperfect, unforgettable ways” Roxane Gay.
“Brilliantly inventive and blazingly smart, these stories have the life-and-death stakes of nightmares and fairy tales; they’re full of urgent, almost unbearable reality. Carmen Machado is an extraordinary writer, an essential voice” Garth Greenwell “Her Body and Other Parties is a love letter to an obstinate genre that won’t be gentrified. It’s a wild thing, this book, covered in sequins and scales, blazing with the influence of fabulists from Angela Carter to Kelly Link and Helen Oyeyemi, and borrowing from science fiction, queer theory, and horror … Not since Karen Russell […] has a debut collection of short stories from a relatively unknown author garnered such attention, or deserved it more” The New York Times
“Her Body and Other Parties will delight you, hurt you, and astonish you as only the smartest literature can. In this collection, Machado blends horror, fairy tale, pop culture and myth in mesmerizing ways that feel utterly new. These stories are peerless and brilliant” Alissa Nutting “An intimate, unrelenting style that grabs you by the throat and sinks its perfectly polished nails in” Harper’s Bazaar
