And I Do Not Forgive You: Stories and Other Revenges
And I Do Not Forgive You: Stories and Other Revenges | Amber Sparks
2 posts | 2 read | 3 to read
Feminism fuels fantasy in this genre-busting collection by master of the fantastic (Roxane Gay) Amber Sparks. Exciting fans of such writers as Kelly Link, Karen Russell, and Carmen Maria Machado with prose that shimmers and stings, Amber Sparks holds a singular role in the canon of the weird. Now, she reaches new, uncanny heights with And I Do Not Forgive You. In Mildly Happy, With Moments of Joy, a friend is ghosted by a simple text message; in Everyones a Winner at Meadow Park, a teen precariously coming of age in a trailer park befriends an actual ghost. At once humorous and unapologetically fi erce, these stories shine an interrogating light on the adage that history likes to lie about women as the subjects of A Short and Speculative History of Lavoisiers Wife and You Wont Believe What Really Happened to the Sabine Women (its true, you wont) will attest. Blending fairy tales and myths with apocalyptic technologies, all tethered intricately by shades of rage, And I Do Not Forgive You offers a mosaic of an all-too-real world that fails to listen to its silenced goddesses.

Happy to find this on the free shelf at work. I loved her previous collection and this one starts (dedication and first very short story) quite strongly. Happy Friday!

A #feminist, fabulous collection of short stories. Some were more like fairy tales, but all had real-feeling relationships and hilarious moments (many devastating ones too). If you‘re trying to add more short stories to your 2020 reading list, stack this one!

Thanks to #Netgalley!
