Book DescriptionChosen as the best of more than 250 books submitted to Starcherone Books's annual blind-judged competition, Nina Shope?s debut collection of three novellas demonstrate stunning range and intensity. In the title novella, a young womanlearns that her mother is dying and finds herself stalked by nightmarish figures ? the hideously transformed maiden, Arachne, an upside-down man in a Miro painting, and the spiders that hatch and haunt the text like tumors ? all coinciding withthe emergence of her own sexual awareness. With In Urbem, Shope imagines an archetypal ancient city, that city beneath the pavement of all modern cities, in fantastic prose reminiscent of Italo Calvino?s Invisible Cities. Finally, Hagiographies explores two intense female friendships, both of which are suddenly and arbitrarily shattered, in a wildly inventive narrative proceeding by means of juxtaposed images rather than sequential events.
