Finalist for the National Book Award for Fiction "[These stories] vibrate with originality, queerness, sensuality and the strange."--Roxane Gay "In these formally brilliant and emotionally charged tales, Machado gives literal shape to women's memories and hunger and desire. I couldn't put it down."--Karen Russell In Her Body and Other Parties, Carmen Maria Machado blithely demolishes the arbitrary borders between psychological realism and science fiction, comedy and horror, fantasy and fabulism. While her work has earned her comparisons to Karen Russell and Kelly Link, she has a voice that is all her own. In this electric and provocative debut, Machado bends genre to shape startling narratives that map the realities of women's lives and the violence visited upon their bodies. A wife refuses her husband's entreaties to remove the green ribbon from around her neck. A woman recounts her sexual encounters as a plague slowly consumes humanity. A salesclerk in a mall makes a horrifying discovery within the seams of the store's prom dresses. One woman's surgery-induced weight loss results in an unwanted houseguest. And in the bravura novella "Especially Heinous," Machado reimagines every episode ofLaw & Order: Special Victims Unit, a show we naïvely assumed had shown it all, generating a phantasmagoric police procedural full of doppelgängers, ghosts, and girls with bells for eyes. Earthy and otherworldly, antic and sexy, queer and caustic, comic and deadly serious,Her Body and Other Partiesswings from horrific violence to the most exquisite sentiment. In their explosive originality, these stories enlarge the possibilities of contemporary fiction.… (més)

This is a brilliant collection of stories that blur the boundaries between realist and more fantastical fiction.

I loved so much about it - the writing style, the characters, the unashamed focus on women's desires and queer lives, the inventive plots. I don't think there's a single weak story in this collection, which is really rare!

I think there was only one story that I didn't quite 'get' - The Resident - but I still enjoyed reading it. I'm definitely going to look out for more writing by Machado in future. ( )

I found the writing to be subtle and brutal. I love suspense and mystery and each story was carried forward with a great unknown that the reader is left to parse and puzzle and finally empathize over. Of course, it was wonderful to read stories that are not mapped out by heteronormative structures, social or otherwise. This was a good queer read. ( )

Bits of this, I loved. And bits of it, I was meh about. And bits of it bored me. I suppose that's often how it goes with a book of short stories, though for me, this went that way more than most. ( )

Review of The Husband Stitch

I came across this by accident and I love it. It's disturbing, clever, explicit, challenging, unconventional - and brilliant. Probably the best short story I've read in a very long time. ( )

My body is a haunted

There are no doors but there are knives
and a hundred windows.
