From Philip K. Dick Award finalist Elwin Cotman an irresistibly unnerving collection of stories that explore the anxieties of living while Black--a high-wire act of literary-fantastical hybrid fiction.A rural town finds itself under the authoritarian sway of a tree that punishes children. A pair of old friends navigate their fraught history as strange happenings escalate in a Mexican restaurant. A pair of narcissistic friends wreak havoc on an activist community. An aloof young man finds himself living through his lovers memories. And a day of LARPing takes a cosmic turn. In each of the seven stories in this collection characters pursue their obsessions on paths to glory and destruction while around them their worlds twist and warp oscillating between reality and impossibility. On display throughout is Cotmans ability to reveal truths about the human experience--about friendship love betrayal bitterness--through whimsy horror and fantasy. Elegiac in tone imaginative and humorous in their execution the character-driven stories in Weird Black Girls challenge incite and entertain.
