February’s featured reader is Dana Green. She received her MFA from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst and is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Denver. She lives and writes somewhere outside of Denver with her almost husband and cat.
Her debut collection of stories Sometimes the Air in the Room Goes Missing is forthcoming from Tarpaulin Sky Press in March 2016.
Sometimes the Air in the Room Goes Missing travels the gaps in experimental translation by exploring how storytelling changes with each iteration. This collection of stories, each told through multiple versions, discover mutated sheep that can herd themselves into watercolors, a pregnant woman whose water breaks every day for nine months, and children with teeth that grow uncontrollably. The unexpected syntax and sense of déjà vu encourages the loosening of bookbindings – a presentation of narrative as echo.
