Fiction. A host of characters emerge from a madwoman's dreams, populating a world as strange and magnificent as a painting by Hieronymous Bosch. A boy with one wing seeks the secret to flight. A girl with a mirror for a face, adored by all, longs to simply eat. A pregnant girl reflects on the effects of metamorphoses. The stories of BOYSGIRLS are modern myths: tales that exist within our present time but also outside it, in a place as eternal as Shangri-La or Middle Earth. An unforgettable book of Ovidian imagination, BOYSGIRLS testifies that Katie Farris is one of the most talented prose stylists of a new generation. "BOYSGIRLS is one for the classic fairy-tale shelves, joining Borges/Lispector, Calvino/Carter, Andersen/d'Aulnoy with its spectral powers. Katie Farris's spare and lyrical language levitates here—she is a haunting and new revelation"—Kate Bernheimer.
