Product Description

'Impossible, imperfect, unforgettable.' - Roxane Gay - Demolishes the borders between magical realism and science fiction, comedy and horror, fantasy and fabulism.

Shortlisted for the National Book Award Fiction Prize 2017

Shortlisted for the International Dylan Thomas Prize 2018

In her provocative debut, Carmen Maria Machado demolishes the borders between magical realism and science fiction, comedy and horror, fantasy and fabulism.
A wife refuses her husband's entreaties to remove the mysterious green ribbon from around her neck. A woman recounts her sexual encounters as a plague spreads across the earth. A salesclerk in a mall makes a horrifying discovery about a store's dresses. One woman's surgery-induced weight loss results in an unwanted house guest.

A dark, shimmering slice into womanhood, Her Body and Other Parties is wicked and exquisite.

‘A writer of rare daring … there's a ragged glory to the stories' formal experimentation and erotic fearlessness, and the gusto with which they reinvent horror, SF and fairytale tropes.’ - Guardian

‘A love letter to an obstinate genre that won't be gentrified. It's a wild thing, this book, covered in sequins and scales, blazing with the influence of fabulists from Angela Carter to Kelly Link and Helen Oyeyemi, and borrowing from science fiction, queer theory and horror …’ - New York Times
