Out there

Folk, Kate
"Full of indelible characters and darkly comic twists, the stories in Kate Folk's debut collection are perfectly pitched for the madness of our modern moment. A ward for a mysterious bone-melting disorder is the scene of a perilous love triangle. A curtain of void obliterates the globe at a steady pace, leaving one woman to decide whom she wants to spend eternity with. A woman navigates finding a partner while beautiful humanoid robots called "blots" have infiltrated the dating apps of San Francisco, dispatched by Russian hackers to steal data. And in a companion piece, a woman and a blot find connection in an unexpected yet tender love story. As this debut collection explores what it means to face the void, human beings try to find their way in bizarre and dystopic settings, whether their own body, their relationships, their home, or the world at large. Imaginative, genre-bending, and oddly prescient, Out There depicts a landscape that is eminently of-the-moment, terrifying but ultimately hopeful"--
