For the past few months, I’ve been living in the bizarre and exquisite surreal world of Leonora Carrington. This year is her centennial, and the publishing world celebrated by bringing most of her writing back into print!
Dorothy, a publishing project published THE COMPLETE STORIES OF LEONORA CARRINGTON in the US, while Silver Press launched their new feminist press in the UK with THE DEBUTANTE AND OTHER STORIES.
Sequentially, New York Review of Books Classics released Carrington’s novella DOWN BELOW and a children’s book MILK OF DREAMS. Virago books published the first proper and authorized biography, THE SURREAL LIFE OF LEONORA CARRINGTON by Joanna Moorhead.
And I’ve been celebrating this wonderful comeback with my read-along, “Hyenas, Horses, and Rabbits, Oh My!” of all the above with WeirdFictionReview.com, and several GIVEAWAYS! Each giveaway will feature one of the Carrington books discussed, plus an ARC of my debut collection, CALLS FOR SUBMISSION.
