SOME OF THEM WILL CARRY ME
ABOUT THE BOOK
A debut collection that ranges in length, style, and tone--Some of Them Will Carry Me is a collage of social commentary, surrealism, recipes, folklore, and art. What brings these stories together is a focus on the experiences of Black women in moments of dislocation, and a cinematic prose style saturated with detail: a child's legs bent upon the small bosom of their mother, three-piece suits floating in a river, a man holding a rotting banana during sex, wet cardboard, a woman walking naked through a traffic tunnel. In language that is lyrical, minimal, and often absurd, the stories in Some of Them Will Carry Me deconstruct contemporary life while building a surprising new reality of language, intimacy, and loss.
