Belly Up

Belly Up is a story collection that contains ghosts, mediums, a lover obsessed with the sound of harps tuning, teenage girls who believe they are actually plants, gulag prisoners who outsmart a terrible warden, and carnivorous churches. Throughout these grotesque and tender stories, characters question the bodies they've been given and what their bodies require to be sustained.At the intersection of the surreal and the real, Rita Bullwinkel has carved out a unique space in which the mundane and the strange cohabitate and sometimes frolic. The sharp, precise writing and careful observations of the human condition in her excellent first collection Belly Up signal the debut of a major new talent. Jeff VanderMeerThese stunning stories take place in the spaces between ordinary objects and events. They are mysterious, strange, and fearlessly funny in their expression of human isolation, and they contain the existential surprises of great literature. Belly Up is a powerful debut by an unusually gifted writer. Lorrie MooreBullwinkel's delightful, passionate stories of disturbance and worried words have the best kind of frenetic energy.

    an astounding collection. reveals - by leading readers into something just past belief, something at times uncomfortable - the absolute absurdity and magnificence of existing. Bullwinkel has def joined my list of Favorite Authors

    “Here, in this twenty-four-hour donut shop, things are shifting too. The teenagers are looking for things, but they’re not sure what. They have big fantasies that they think up together and a conception of the world that is wholly wrong, but shared, and that is what makes it real. What these teenagers want more than anything is simply to find another person who wants to experience the world with them, feel the cold of a winter lake or the pain of a cut gained or the thrill of breaking into an ab ...more

    Excellent book it holds your attention from the moment you pick it up.

    Short story collections are such interesting beasts. This one no exception mostly evoked a mood, but a mood that’s difficult to describe, something from a melancholy branch.

In fact the more bizarre ones I liked less, too…I don’t know, too scab picky of a mien som ...more

    I do this every time where I get so amped about the inability to obtain a book that I stop everything else once I do get my hands on it and I devour it in 48 hours like it may go away unexpectedly.

    I enjoyed this collection of short stories. It’s pretty remarkable writing and each story packs it’s own unique punch. I’m sure they are laden with meaning and allegory etc but I just enjoyed them simply as they were.

    Personal favorites: the two girls fascinated with lifetime learning and especially w
