Tres Gatos Book Club: Fen

On Sunday November 19th, join us at Tres Gatos for a discussion, a debate, a dissection and a drink as we dig into Daisy Johnson's short story collection FEN! The book is on sale at the Tres Gatos bookstore and the event is open to the public!

"Daisy Johnson’s Fen, set in the fenlands of England, transmutes the flat, uncanny landscape into a rich, brooding atmosphere. From that territory grow stories that blend folklore and restless invention to turn out something entirely new. Amid the marshy paths of the fens, a teenager might starve herself into the shape of an eel. A house might fall in love with a girl and grow jealous of her friend. A boy might return from the dead in the guise of a fox. Out beyond the confines of realism, the familiar instincts of sex and hunger blend with the shifting, unpredictable wild as the line between human and animal is effaced by myth and metamorphosis. With a fresh and utterly contemporary voice, Johnson lays bare these stories of women testing the limits of their power to create a startling work of fiction"

See you guys at Book Club!
