New collections of short fiction by acclaimed writer Kimberly King Parsons (Black Light) and Pulitzer Prize finalist Karen Russell (Orange World and Other Stories) plumb the dark depths of the human psyche and experience in brief stories that have lingering impact. From falling in love with a two thousand year old girl to bringing us inside a makeshift fort with a daughter and her alcoholic mother, Parsons and Russell are unafraid to shine a light in dark corners, marrying beauty to the grotesque and soaring with lyrical introspection.
