Hurray! Kuzhali Manickavel’s debut collection, Insects Are Just Like You and Me Except Some of Them Have Wings, is out from Blaft Publications Private Limited.
You might remember Kuzhali’s story “Hoodoos” which placed first in our Canadian Travel Stories Contest in 2007. If you are new to Kuzhali’s work, you are in for a treat. If you know her work already, you are probably, like me, on hold to India right now trying to order the book.
Here’s what Miranda July has to say about the collection:
"Not merely lyrical and strange, but also deadpan funny. I can’t shake the feeling that I know this woman, personally -- like we hung out at a party or something. But I don’t, and we didn’t. She’s just that good."
