Two bits of news! First of all, my story “The Husband Stitch” will be appearing online at Granta around Halloween, alongside their fall issue, “Fate.” I absolutely love Granta and am honored and excited to have my work appearing there.
By turns funny, disturbing, canny, and inventive, this novella takes the form of fictional episode summaries of the famous show (but if the show, as one reader puts it, were directed by David Lynch). Machado, another new voice in American fiction, manages to create an engaging, strange, and wholly original story that draws into conversation sexual violence, popular culture, and our own weird-feeling relationships therein.
Thank you, Arna!
