Carmen Maria Machado's HER BODY AND OTHER PARTIES is a revelation in the short story form. Simultaneously playful, dark and hilarious, the cataclysmic power of Machado's experimental stories lives in her masterful skill at showing the identities we all form as we are shaped by the fractured psyche that is American pop culture. From the first story, which weaves together all the urban legend horrors we read as kids, to setting an entire surreal novella in made-up Law & Order SVU episodes, where the show's characters' identities splinter as they are haunted by the endless loop of victims and the relentless banality of their own interpersonal relationships, this is a book that will endure and endure. -Angela Maria Spring
