Secretion. Excretion. Severed limbs, lost animals, and porcelain teeth. In these twenty-four radical works of female (dis)embodiment and creation—cries from the dark filtered through the fitful voices of a ventriloquist's doll—Watterson invites readers to explore a defamiliarized world that is only as horrifying as our own.
