Keep your eyes open for the debut collection of stories from Amy E. Yergen, At Times I Almost Dream, which will be released this coming February from Pink Narcissus.
Amy E. Yergen, hailed as “brilliant” by Publishers Weekly for her story “Rapunzel’s Daughters,” returns to Pink Narcissus with At Times I Almost Dream, a collection of stories that push the envelope for strong female characters by exploring the very notion of strength. Explore the social and romantic complexities of physical difference in Thumbelina’s blog. Consider the extent to which finding a compatible roommate is similar to kissing frogs. By introducing surrealistically analogous contemporary situations, Yergen’s dream-like fiction extends folklore and fairy tales, rendering familiar heroines simultaneously strange and universal.
