About the Author
"Lindy Biller's Love at the End of the World is a revelation. Filled with the grace and grief of life, its uncanny abundance and its haunting losses, this collection of stories is empathetic, endlessly imaginative, and formally adventurous. At once precise and expansive, humorous and heartfelt, Biller's prose will leave you more attuned to the stubborn wonder and complexities of love and being alive, together and alone. As its title suggests, hope and sorrow exist as neighbors, deepened and amplified by each other. Biller's collection proves that flash fiction is both a miraculous moment and the glorious tail of a comet, lingering in your mind and in the world long after it has streaked across the page."
-K-Ming Chang, author of Bestiary, Gods of Want, and Bone House
"In her prize-winning debut collection, Lindy Biller writes whimsy and wonder through glittering skeletons, a crying glacier, mittens made from someone else's sweater, marigolds, monarch butterflies, a boy named Ham fighting giraffes, a pinkish-cheeked doctor. Against her memorable backdrops and characters, Biller weaves threads of religion and motherhood and life. There's dimension and identifiability in her words, an intentional surreality that softens serious subjects and makes ordinary things and people - extraordinary. Readers will be drawn to her collection's end and back again, as Biller's world and people building infuses love throughout."
-Amy Barnes, author of Mother Figures, Ambrotypes, and Child Craft
"Love at the End of the World will leave you breathless and yearning for more. Lindy Biller deftly weaves these seemingly separate narratives into a tapestry of climate change and the rapture, astronauts and delivery drivers, mothers and children, gorgeous fractal patterns, circling back again and again, expanding and contracting with each wondrous story."
-Melissa Llanes Brownlee, author of Hard Skin and Kahi and Lua
