Bats or Swallows

Teri Vlassopoulos

I’ve known Teri for years via the zine world, and it’s exciting to see her first book published. These stories are largely melancholy, lined with the poignancy of deaths and disappointments. They feel open-ended, most likely because the characters without fail need to reach a point of internal conclusion rather than exacting any kind of influence on the world around them.
