Notes From Your Bookseller

Agustina Bazterrica’s imagination knows no boundaries. This collection of remarkable short stories is… short. 176 pages. Each “claw” a story with an added “Black Bird” that questions our own animal nature. With stories running from one page to ten, we don’t think you’d want them any longer – if for no other reason as to not send your mind into shock. Keep turning the pages and reminding yourself, “It’s just Fiction. It’s just Fiction."

This Barnes & Noble excusive edition includes an original bonus essay exclusively for Barnes & Noble customers, and will have special effects on the cover and endpapers.

A collection of nineteen dark, wildly imaginative short stories from the author of the award-winning TikTok sensation Tender Is the Flesh.

From celebrated author Agustina Bazterrica, this collection of nineteen brutal, darkly funny short stories takes into our deepest fears and through our most disturbing fantasies. Through stories about violence, alienation, and dystopia, Bazterrica’s vision of the human experience emerges in complex, unexpected ways—often unsettling, sometimes thrilling, and always profound. In “Roberto,” a girl claims to have a rabbit between her legs. A woman’s neighbor jumps to his death in “A Light, Swift, and Monstrous Sound,” and in “Candy Pink,” a woman fails to contend with a difficult breakup in five easy steps.

Written in Bazterrica’s signature clever, vivid style, these stories question love, friendship, family relationships, and unspeakable desires.
