Carmen Maria Machado: Her Body and Other Parties

View descriptionShare

Variously described as macabre, erotic, comic and caustic, Carmen Maria Machado’s Her Body and Other Parties has become a literary sensation since its release. Blending science fiction, queer theory and horror, the provocative short story collection maps the realities of women’s lives and the violence visited upon their bodies. Carmen talks to Amelia Lush about an electrifying debut that navigates difficult terrain with verve and panache.
