This product is currently sold out.
DROWN/SEVER/SING is a collection of short stories based on popular Colombian legend and folk tales, retold, recast and reimagined. The book opens with a brief creative nonfiction essay that explains the concept of the project, to re-appropriate the monsters of folklore and legend, and take William Blake to heart when he wrote, “Invent your own mythology or be a slave to another man’s.” What follows is a parade of humanized monsters and monstrous humans. Men with axes and devils with chafed inner thighs. Weeping women dreaming of drowning gods and an eleven-year-old Cain flirting with girls and inventing murder.
