Description

WINNER OF THE BOA SHORT FICTION PRIZE

ON THE WASHINGTON POST'S 2017 'A SUMMER BOOK LIST LIKE NO OTHER'

Gravity Changes is a collection of fantastical, off-beat stories that view the quotidian world through the lens of the absurd. Set in a surreal, fictional world that is populated by strange, fascinating characters--children who defy gravity, a man who marries a light bulb, the Devil and his ex-wife--these stories take wide steps outside of reality, finding new ways to illuminate truth.
