Bliss Montage: Stories

Ling Ma
Bruna Dantas LobatoBruna Dantas Lobato

Ma masterfully captures her characters’ double consciousness, always seeing themselves through the white gaze, in stunning and bold new ways ... Even the weaker stories in the book are redeemed by Ma’s restrained prose style, dry humor, and clever gut-punch endings.

Happy pub day to the great @GardelStenio, whose beautifully queer debut novel THE WORDS THAT REMAIN made me cry so many times as I translated it from Portuguese last spring. Out now from @NewVesselPress! https://t.co/VA29wJVIY0

Overjoyed to be longlisted for the PEN Translation Prize!!! Many thanks to @PENamerica and the judges for including Abreu's Moldy Strawberries, and to @archipelagobks for publishing this weird little book by one of my favorite writers on Earth. https://t.co/KcoosHdQzh https://t.co/gzTuvG8Sek
