About this product
- DescriptionAmusing, touching, and unsettling, <b>The Melancholy of Anatomy</b> is that most wonderful of fictions, one that makes us see the world in an entirely new light. Here is the body turned inside out, its members set free, its humors released upon the world. Hearts bigger than planets devour light and warp the space around them; the city of London has a menstrual flow that gushes through its underground pipes; gobs of phlegm cement friendships and sexual relationships; and a floating fetus larger than a human becomes the new town pastor. In this debut story collection, Shelley Jackson rewrites our private passages, and translates the dumb show of the body into prose as gorgeous as it is unhygienic.
- Author BiographyShelley Jackson s <i>The Patchwork Girl</i> is perhaps the best-known work in the genre of Electronic Literature. Jackson studied with Robert Coover at Brown University and now lives in New York City.
