New Books from NER Writers: The Sin Eater

final_sineatercoverNER contributor Elizabeth Frankie Rollins has just released her debut collection of short fiction, The Sin Eater & Other Stories. From the publishers:

“Damage suffuses The Sin Eater & Other Stories. From within Elizabeth Frankie Rollins’ construct of the blighted home, an adulterous husband calls on the services of a stranger to expunge his guilt, a young couple is diagnosed with the bubonic plague, and a bored woman finds herself growing a tail. Yet these others don’t dwell; instead, they frame themselves in a way that is sound in structure and sentiment and plunges them from metaphor into modern-day marvel. In the evocative stories of this debut collection, even the tightest crevices dazzle with restorative possibility.”

Elizabeth Frankie Rollins’ piece “Joint Custody” appeared in NER 26.2.

The Sin Eater & Other Stories is available at Queen’s Ferry Press and other booksellers.
