Amber Sparks holds her crown in the canon of the weird with this fantastical collection of "eye-popping range" (John Domini, Washington Post).

Boldly blending fables and myths with apocalyptic technologies, Amber Sparks has built a cultlike following with And I Do Not Forgive You. Fueled by feminism in all its colors, her surreal worlds—like Kelly Link's and Karen Russell's—are all-too-real. In "Mildly Happy, With Moments of Joy," a friend is ghosted by a text message; in "Everyone's a Winner at Meadow Park," a teen coming-of-age in a trailer park befriends an actual ghost. Rife with "sharp wit, and an abiding tenderness" (Ilana Masad, NPR), these stories shine an interrogating light on the adage that "history likes to lie about women," as the subjects of "You Won't Believe What Really Happened to the Sabine Women" will attest. Written in prose that both shimmers and stings, the result is "nothing short of a raging success, a volume that points to a potentially incandescent literary future" (Kurt Baumeister, The Brooklyn Rail).
