Now We Haunt This Home Together (Madeline Anthes)
Madeline Anthes's Now We Haunt This Home Together is a collection of short stories and flash exploring different facets of womanhood and girlhood. These stories are about the ways women can disappear, and the ways they find themselves again. Each story, whether realistic or more fantastical, will haunt you long after you read it.
Memories are ghosts herein. Pain leaves poltergeist marks. Love is a specter an arm’s length away, moments from dissipating into the mist. Madeline Anthes has mastered the art of using her words to give us a peek behind the veil. Not to frighten, not to unsettle, but to show that the good, bad, and painful parts of being alive are rife with beauty and pulsing with sorrow. Now We Haunt This Home Together is an achievement. And Anthes is a massive talent.
