The women in Victoria Lancelotta's debut collection of stories live in the space between memory and desire, where what they see around them and what they know to be true can be vastly different things. They live in a world where time is malleable, stones are food, the body is an altar, and the confessional is a difficult paradise. Here a blind man's stick and a church carnival offer equal opportunities for redemption, and the family is the last place to look for home.Dark, edgy, brilliant, and disturbing, Here in the World tells us stories of women who, however flawed or compromised, are fierce and unforgettable.
