About the Author

Natalia Borges Polesso is from Bento Gonçalves in Brazil. She is a writer and a translator with a PhD in literary theory. She is the author of Cutouts for Photo Album without People (2013), Amora (2015)--which in 2016 won the Prêmio Jabuti, the Jabuti Amazon Reader's Choice Award, the Book of the Year AGES Award, and the Prêmio Açorianos de Literatura--and Control (2019), among other titles. In 2017, she was one of only two Brazilian authors on the Bogotá39 list, which selects the most promising Latin American authors under thirty-nine.

Julia Sanches is a translator of Portuguese, Spanish, French, and Catalan. She has translated works by Susana Moreira Marques, Noemi Jaffe, Daniel Galera, and Geovani Martins, among others. Her shorter translations have appeared in various magazines and periodicals, including Words without Borders, Granta, Tin House, and Guernica.


"With brevity, abstraction, and narrative tension, Polesso offers a poignant look at women alternately broken down and resilient. Fans of Lucia Berlin will love these tense and twisty tales." --Publishers Weekly

"Borges Polesso explores the depths of amorous relationships between women young and old, married and single, out and closeted, independent and cripplingly co-dependent--but first and foremost, in love...A romp through 33 stories of lesbian love." --Kirkus Reviews
