““I wanted to be close to you. So I went to the forest…” Gardens, relationships and imaginations run wild in Katie Oliver’s debut short fiction collection. The world is unpredictable and no woman is safe. Boundaries are blurred: between fantasy and reality, technology and nature, autonomy and oppression. The threat of violence simmers throughout as women transform into birds, converse with plants and plot their revenge. These dark, surreal tales will put down roots and stay with you long after reading: how close… is too close?”
