KL Pereira presents her new short story collection, A DREAM BETWEEN TWO RIVERS: STORIES OF LIMINALITY

A DREAM BETWEEN TWO RIVERS: STORIES OF LIMINALITY is both literary and speculative, both magically real and viscerally strange, in the tradition of writers like Angela Carter, Karen Russell, and Jorge Luis Borges. In the collection, Pereira uses elements of fairy tales, folk tales, and myths to highlight the lives of women, children, and immigrants. Lucid prose underscores the tenacity of those who are the most vulnerable, who live on the edges, between neat and clear definitions of who they are and who they want to be. Pereira explores rebirth amid darkness, free of normative ideas of gender, class, race, and sexuality.
