We’re pleased to announce the acquisition of Rebecca Fishow’s How to Love a Black Hole. This strange, formally inventive collection contains eighteen flashes and stories—a woman grows ears all over her body, a husband’s new bride drifts into the clouds, a garden yields a grotesque and bloody harvest. Throughout these and other uncanny stories, readers explore a kaleidoscope of love, desire, grief, and regret.
