Brainmatter: Essays, Narrative & Short Fiction
"From the sublime to the ridiculous, Kelli Jae Baeli leaves nothing sacred, and everything open to scrutiny, in this collection of works that show her versatility, humor, and unique voice." Kindred Ink Writers Initiative In this new collection of short works, titles like "A Backwoods Eatery With a Side of Velcro Papaw" and "Alien Tummy Tuck" are enough to pique the interest of any avid reader. And there are memorable lines sprinkled throughout, such as, "I will not be a contestant in a wet T-shirt contest until my breasts look more like breasts, and less like something I should tuck into my pants." But then Baeli offers more, revealing her ability to be just as serious as she is funny, such as the story "The House of Escher" and the darker piece "Chickens Come Home."
