Her Body And Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado

By Carmen Maria Machado

In Her physique and different Parties, Carmen Maria Machado demolishes the borders among magical realism and technological know-how fiction, comedy and horror, delusion and fabulism. during this provocative debut, startling narratives map the realities of women's lives and the violence visited on their bodies.

A spouse refuses her husband's entreaties to take away the mysterious eco-friendly ribbon from round her neck. a girl recounts her sexual encounters as a virulent disease spreads around the earth. A shop attendant in a mall makes a frightening discovery in regards to the store's promenade clothes. One woman's surgery-induced weight-loss leads to an undesirable condo visitor.

Sexy and caustic, comedian and cut-throat, Her physique and different events is excellent, hectic and exquisite.
