Bookslinger Update: “When the Weather Changes You”

The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!

9780983422877Today’s story comes from May We Shed These Human Bodies by Amber Sparks, published by Curbside Splendor. May We Shed These Human Bodies peers through vast spaces and skies with the world’s most powerful telescope to find humanity: wild and bright and hard as diamonds. Here is humanity building: families reconstruct themselves, mothers fashion babies from two-by-fours and nails, boys make a mother out of leaves and twigs and wishes. Here is humanity tearing down: a wife sets her house on fire in revenge, a young girl plots to kill the ghosts that stalk her, a dying man takes the whole human race with him. Here is humanity transforming: feral children, cannibalistic seniors, animal wives—a whole sideshow’s worth of oddballs and freaks.
