Starred reviews from Kirkus, PW, Booklist, & Library Journal

My debut short story collection, Her Body and Other Parties, was published by Graywolf Press in 2017. An audio version from Recorded Books was released simultaneously. Her Body and Other Parties will also be released in the UK in Winter 2018 from Serpent’s Tail.

“[Her Body and Other Parties] is that hallowed thing: an example of almost preposterous talent that also encapsulates something vital but previously diffuse about the moment... Machado is a master of such pointed formal play, of queering genre and the supposed laws of reality to present alternative possibilities... Machado reveals just how original, subversive, proud and joyful it can be to write from deep in the gut, even — especially — if the gut has been bruised.”
— Los Angeles Times
