PortraitLucy Corin is an assistant professor in the English department at James Madison University. Her short stories have appeared in numerous literary journals and twice in Algonquin's New Stories from the South, the Year's Best anthology series. Corin was first published by FC2 in 1996 in New Women's Fiction Anthology, Chick-Lit 2 (No Chick Vics). This is her first novel.
Pressestimmen"Corin reinhabits American speech like a psychokiller dressed out in a victim's skin. Her splintered perspective cracks the glossy landscape of commodification to reveal an unsettling intimacy with danger. It seeps through bandages of history and myth like blood from the torn-apart body of the ancient Egyptian god Osiris, falling apart in the arms of his sister-wife Isis. Corin anatomizes the eternal embrace of what saves and what kills, refusing to compromise the complexity of experience and language. There is no escape - not even in irony. Hers is a fully awakened sensibility." - Patricia Eakins, author of The Marvelous Adventures of Pierre Baptiste"
