Gwynne Garfinkle's People Change
I'm pleased to announce the release of People Change, a collection of stories and poetry by Gwynne Garfinkle. People Change is the sixty-third volume in Aqueduct's Conversation Pieces series.
The stories and poems in People Change illuminate the personal and feminist concerns evoked by classic horror movies and other aspects of popular culture. Mining the implications of figures like the Bride of Frankenstein, Samantha Stephens, and the Stepford Wives, the book explores such themes as family and misogyny. At times horror merges with autobiography, as in "It's a Universal Picture." The women and girls in Gwynne Garfinkle's stories variously seek the gift of flight and the gift of friendship, real and imaginary.
