Suspended Heart, by Heather Fowler

Regular price $15.00

In an explosion of love’s metaphors, Fowler’s debut magic realism collection, Suspended Heart, takes on American fabulism with a cast of unexpected heroines in the narratives of life and loss—women whose hearts fall out at public malls, women whose bodies bloom with changing seasons, women who sprout blades or have multiple eyes, sleep as snakes, or birth saints like lapis lazuli babies. There’s a fearlessness to this prose, a melody of life and magic and loss. This Collector’s Edition contains three previously uncollected stories.
