Skels

by Maggie Dubris

List Price: $16.95
Paperback | 6.2 x 8.9, 238 pages | ISBN 9781932360257

Imagining a world wherein ambulance drivers transport skels, or the souls of dead writers, through the underworld, the author pens a unique novel set in 1979 New York that merges the ancient with the modern. Original.

Dubris captures that hurried sense of absurdity that other authors, like Denis Johnson, have tackled in the emergency room-trauma story genre. And like Johnson, Dubris harnesses a dry, sick sense of humor . . . Skels conveys the overwhelming feelings one has during epic moments of tragedy.

 
LA Weekly
1/2

[Dubris’s] New York has everything and nothing to do with the real world, which is a reminder of something very simple: books don’t need to get all pompous about our social disasters in order to make the grandest possible statements about them. Skels floats completely free of those painful, tiresome conversations about who we’re supposed to be and who we have to be.
