Summary
From headless schoolgirls, to talking food and threesomes, pretty much anything can happen in these weird, luminous and witty short stories. Ranging in form from flash fiction to intense psychological drama, magical realism, horror and erotica, these strange, clever, frank and sometimes very funny stories can be serious too. Carefully crafted over 15 years, they explore unbounded sexualities, a vision of the fluidity of the person, and an oblique and imaginative take on politics - from the deaths of black people at the hands of the police, to the deep shifts in sensibility that signal subtle changes in the nature of capitalism - and much more. These stories may tickle, arouse and sometimes shock, but they will unwaveringly engage both the heart and the mind
