Description

"Her sickness starts with a tingling, a current from some strange electric cloud that can be sensed, but never seen. She feels it looming as she rises from the bed. She feels it humming through the floorboards, through her feet, and through her legs."

*

Silk Flowers, a novella by Meghan Lamb
95 pages
Design/layout by M. Kitchell

"A poetry of the body these words—a meticulous meditation. With a full control of voice and tone, Meghan Lamb captures the complexities of illness, on relationships, on memory, on the disappearing self, the lonely isolation of an altered state. A serious and elegant book." —Sean Lovelace, author of Fog Gorgeous Stag

"Silk Flowers is incisive, intimate, ethereal yet physical, capturing the disconnect between lovers, a disconnect that appears to travel deep into each one of them and then manifest in mysterious, unbidden ways. Sharply written, structured in an almost unsettling his/hers dichotomy, this is a novel that will make the reader ponder the distances between and within." —Dao Strom, author of We Were Meant to Be a Gentle People

"The seemingly affectless language of this short, serrated novel hides rages and terrors just looking for the chance to do in a nice reader like you. Silk Flowers is the sort of novel a better mother would've warned you about." —James Tadd Adcox, author of Does Not Love

Meghan Lamb holds an MFA from Washington University. She currently lives in St. Louis with her partner, Jason Pappariella. In addition to this book, she has a novella (Sacramento, from Solar Luxuriance) and a chapbook (Dear Theresa, from dancing girl press) to her name.

She wrote this book during a nine-month period wherein her left leg mysteriously stopped working. She was diagnosed with a peroneal neuropathy and told that her nerve would regenerate eventually.

Six years later, her left leg now works normally.
