The Nightgown & Other Poems (Kobo eBook)
Kitaiskaia is the author of Literary Witches, which made waves in 2017 with everyone from The New Yorker to the Washington Post to Maria Popova’s Brain Pickings. Excellent pick for fans of the feminist mythology/fairytale themes in Carmen Maria Machado’s Her Body and Other Parties. She immigrated to the US from Russia, reflected in The Nightgown’s themes of outsidership/linguistic curiosity/Eastern European folktales. She is also married to Fernando Flores, author of FSG-published Tears of the Trufflepig and bookseller at Malvern Books in Austin, TX.
