9780989275910: Three Scenarios in Which Hana Sasaki Grows a Tail

Fiction. Set in Japan, Luce's playful, tender stories—reminiscent of Haruki Murakami and Aimee Bender—tip into the fantastical, plumb the power of memory, and measure the human capacity to love. The award-winning narratives in this mesmerizing debut trace the lives of ex-pats, artists, and outsiders as they seek to find their place in the world. HANA SASAKI beguiles and surprises: stories include an oracular toaster, a woman who grows a tail, and a most unusual kind of sex reassignment.

About the Author:

Kelly Luce graduated from Northwestern University with a BA in Cognitive Science, after which she lived and worked in Japan for three years. Her work has been recognized by fellowships from the MacDowell Colony, Ragdale Foundation, the Kerouac Project, and Jentel Arts, and has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Salon, Electric Literature, American Short Fiction, The Southern Review, and other magazines. She lives in Santa Cruz, California, and Austin, Texas, where she is a fellow at the Michener Center for Writers at the University of Texas and editor-in-chief of Bat City Review.

Review:

""Luce's...incandescent prose lures readers into a land both familiar and fantastically foreign, melding Japanese folklore and traditions with strange and memorable characters." -PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY (Starred Review)
"Luce has created a collection in which the donning of soft skins, naked or furred, is both an act of love and an expression of the unremitting strangeness of the self." -CHICAGO TRIBUNE"Luce manages to effortlessly capture both what it's like to be a foreigner in Japan & to write in a believable way from the perspective of a native." -THE JAPAN TIMES

"Kelly Luce makes a persuasive case for why she should be one of your favorite new short-story writers." - SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
"Three Scenarios in Which Hana Sasaki Grows a Tail is a pleasing mix of fantasy and delicate, intricate description, a tiny volume bursting with stories representing a deft sense of timing, imagination and wit." -BOOKSLUT"...despite Luce's dazzling suspensions of disbelief, she never once misses the trapeze." -LOS ANGELES REVIEW
