During heart surgery on a woman, the doctor discovers her sister tucked inside. She doesn't want to come out. A woman traverses boundaries, even walls. By turns surreal, mournful, and droll, this collection of short stories investigates our conflicting urge for intimacy and transcendence.
Enter this cabinet of wonders to find your mind and spirit expand. While the concerns and struggles are familiar - loneliness, troubled marriages, envy, hungers of various sorts -these fabulist tales shed fresh light, producing strange and tasty blooms. ⎯Ron MacLean, author of We Might as Well Light Something on Fire
The places her metaphors take us are intimate and quiet-the damp space under stones, the mushrooms that grow in forests. -Dana Diehl, editor of The Collagist
