Description


In nine stories and one novella, author Jen Julian explores realms of the surreal and speculative: from two sisters cleaning out their father's house as it grows and shrinks, to an aunt who watches on anxiously as her niece forges an interdimensional connection; from a small town populated by animate sex dolls, to an eerie near-future in which AI co-opt the social media accounts of the dead. By way of ghosts and fish-men, nuclear threats and giant spiders, each story seeks to capture the inherent otherworldliness of feeling displaced, while at the same time illuminating the intimate and tenacious beauty of human beings in constant search of human connection. Winner of the 2018 Press 53 Award for Short Fiction, Earthly Delights and Other Apocalypses by Jen Julian is a collection worth exploring.
