Dialogue with a Somnambulist, by Chloe Aridjis

Staff Pick

Made up of stories, essays, and, most telling, portraits of people who defy the spaces meant to confine them, this collection of fiction and nonfiction describes and embodies the liminal point where truth and its many mirrors meet. Here a wax man walks, lucha libre becomes baroque art, and two sisters grasp each other as bullets fly above them on a night that warms in memory because it marked a time before the city--and the siblings--changed. Traversing time, countries, and categories, this collection is as surreal as it is real--making an art in and of itself.
