NOTE: Tanya no longer works at King's Books. I think often of my diasporic body and seek work that deals with the same: questions of home, problems of language-and-or-lack-thereof, memory, longing, survival, salt. I have a professed interest in translation (both works in and theory of), and a penchant for words that begin with p. Partial to: declarations from those in the margins, short stories, speculative fiction + worlds a touch absurd. Will pick up anything blurbed by Kelly Link.
