Description

A National Book Foundation 5 Under 35 Honoree Whiting Award Winner PEN/Hemingway Award Finalist Lambda Literary Award Finalist Longlisted for the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize for Debut Fiction & The Story Prize "Core captures a precious slice of what it is to be human...? She reaches moments of extraordinary grace." -The New York Times Book Review "Pick up this book and prepare to face sublime recognition." -Rookie "Full of dazzling insight and empathy." -Refinery 29 Refreshing, witty, and absolutely close to the heart, Core's twenty stories, set in and around New York City, have an other-worldly quality along with a deep seriousness-even a moral seriousness. What we know of identity is smashed and in its place, true individuals emerge, each bristling with a unique sexuality, a belief-system all their own. Reminiscent of Jane Bowles, William Burroughs, and Colette, her writing glows with an authenticity that is intoxicating and rare.
