AUG 9 – FOG by Kathryn Scanlan

12.99

Built from an 86-year-old woman's diary acquired at a public estate auction, Scanlan has edited, arranged and rearranged the entries into a moving, singular and human piece of literature that transcends easy category.

Her stories are often just a page or two long, and she writes with a bold originality, almost casually pushing her characters into wild places. The imagery is unforgettable and, fittingly for the collection’s title, animalistic.

Revenge is on the minds of Scanlan’s women, who are pursued, bought, sold, mistreated, and underestimated; that is, until the decisive moment approaches, and they act, as in the closing line of The Poker: ‘All of this is just to say that I have seen mine enemy upon the earth – and I smote him.’” – DAZED
