There Should Be Flowers by Joshua Jennifer Espinoza
Espinoza's debut is a searing interrogation of the world and the self at once. Here, the body is a fixation - as if to look away from it, even briefly, is to risk having it erased. As such, this is a book of unblinking human preservation, and how we trespass ourselves seeking safer spaces.
"There is nothing I love more than an honest storm," Espinoza writes.
There Should Be Flowers is a storm to ravage and rearrange us from our crushing certainties. This book doesn't need a blurb. It simply need to be read.
