Her Body and Other Parties


Her Body and Other Parties

by Carmen Maria Machado

Finalist for the National Book Award for Fiction

"Her Body and Other Parties is a taut, spooky, and intimate collection. Machado explores the power of the body with pure honesty, and each story takes the reader on a journey through bizarre twists of reality with a subtle mix of magical realism thrown in. It’s rooted in the physicality of the body, and the stories deal with sexuality, queerness, and being female in such a remarkable and original way. I haven’t read anything quite like it. It's hard not to marvel at Machado's precision, gracefulness, and generosity. She's a genius." —Sarah
