Her Body and Other Parties

Pick. Pick any reason to read Carmen Maria Machado’s collection of short stories titled, Her Body and Other Parties, but read it.

If you’re a woman, Machado articulates a variety of topics relating to women that will either resonate or clash with your views and experiences. If you enjoy finely written prose, Machado provides that in every story. If you are comfortable with post-modern literature, Machado’s experiments here will interest you.
