Overview

Sweet Affliction collects fifteen sharply-observed, darkly funny stories by Journey Prize-nominated writer Anna Leventhal. A memorable range of narrators navigate the complexities and discomforts of modern life, with the body and its bizarre proclivities--fertility, sickness, desire--at the heart of the narrative. Leventhal reveals the frailties, perversities, and surprising resilience of her singular characters with prose that is by turns caustic, tender, and creepily hilarious. An impressive debut by a daring new literary voice.
