Description

Kate Gehan's debut collection of thirty-four stories is a wry, tender, and inventive exploration of the ways we manage relationships with our siblings, spouses, children, and even ourselves. Qualities of magic realism permeate her writing as characters navigate problems in a world where tumultuous emotions may literally burst into flight. In "Now They Would Behave" a family's discord manifests as an escaped dragon they must tame. In "It Grew to a Certain Size," a mother blames herself for her daughter's death and finds solace conversing with her talking pet pig. In "New Wavelengths" a woman harnesses unexpected natural power to seek revenge on her harasser. Gehan also lasers her insight to critique narrow definitions of female beauty, ultimately inviting us to envision a more glorious society.
