A landmark literary event: the first novel by a female member of Oulipo in English, a sexy genderless love story.
An award-winning, magical contemporary novel about three teenage girls whose exploration of fantasy threatens everything they know of reality.
Three narrators from different historical eras are each engaged in preserving history in Carmen Boullosa’s Heavens on Earth. As her narrators sense and interact with each other over time and space, Boullosa challenges the primacy of recorded history and asserts literature and language’s power to transcend the barriers of time and space in vivid, urgent prose.
Throughout these grotesque and tender stories, characters question the bodies they’ve been given and what their bodies require to be sustained.
