Synopsis:

A collection of stories told through the movies that revisits the lower Manhattan art world and the Atlantic haven of Provincetown in the 1980s.

Masha Tupitsyn's Beauty Talk & Monsters is a debut collection of stories told through the movies. Equally influenced by Brian De Palma and Kathy Acker, Tupitsyn revisits the ruins of a childhood and youth nurtured on the fringe of the glittering lower Manhattan art world and the Atlantic haven of Provincetown in the 1980s. Moving fluidly through space, time, and a range of cinematic frameworks, Tupitsyn cuts through the cynical glamour and illusion of Hollywood to a soft, secret heart.Her narrator, a female loner and traveler, is caught in the maelstrom of films and images, where life is experienced through the eye of a camera lens and seen through the light on the screen. In a precise and elegant style, Beauty Talk & Monsters embraces and confronts a lineage of familiar myths and on- and off-screen cinematic excess in order to challenge the silver screen's century of power over our dreams and ideals. Intimate and intellectual, Tupitsyn's stories play with the cinema's most popular icons and images.

From the Back Cover: "Masha Tupitsyn is a poet of the short story, with a poet's resources, an eye, an ear, a sense of rhythm both internal and external. Her tales have the brevity of Isak Dinesen's, but seem somehow strategically cut off from the sense of the centuries with which we experience Dinesen's Gothic world...Above all else Tupitsyn is a stylist and at her best a superb one." 
--Kevin Killian, author of Impossible Princess, Little Men, and Argento Series
