“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!”

Hailed by the New York Times as “one of America’s most important novelists,” Nicole Krauss is the author of the international bestsellers Great House, a finalist for the National Book Award; The History of Love; and Man Walks into a Room. Her latest work of fiction, Forest Dark, interweaves the stories of two disparate individuals – an older lawyer and a young novelist – whose transcendental search leads them to the same Israeli desert.
