We’re Waiting to Hear Our Names: An Excerpt From Tara Isabel Zambrano’s “Death, Desire, and Other Destinations”
Today, we’re pleased to present an excerpt from Tara Isabel Zambrano’s collection Death, Desire, and Other Destinations.Its publisher describes it as a book which “”explores the rocky terrain of relationships and their fault lines, and unearths the boundaries between love, longing, and loss. Both real and surreal, lyrical and magical, sci-fi and speculative, these small stories shine a light in the darkness of seeking a human connection across space and time.” Among Zambrano’s admirers are Ben Loory and Chaya Bhuvaneswar, who dubbed Zambrano “”a new and distinctive talent in fiction.”
