Summary

In her first collection of short fiction, Damien Angelica Walters weaves her lyrical voice through suffering and sorrow, teasing out the truth and discovering hope.

Sometimes, a thread pulled through the flesh is all that holds you together. Sometimes, the blade of a knife or the point of a nail is the only way you know you're real. When pain becomes art and a quarter is buried deep within you, all you want is to be seen, to have value, to be loved. But love can be fragile, folded into an origami elephant while you disappear, carried on the musical notes that build a bridge, or woven into an illusion so real, so perfect that you can fool yourself for a little while. Paper crumples, bridges fall, and illusions come to an end. Then you must pick up the pieces, stitch yourself back together, and shed your fear, because that is when you find out what you are truly made of and lift your voice; that is when you Sing Me Your Scars.

Weird, but interesting stories. Terrible narrator.

The stories are strange enough and I struggled with appreciating them. But the terrible narration got in the way. The narrator has a nasal voice, like he’s fighting a cold. He mispronounced words and put the emphasis on the wrong syllables. He even repeated phrases at least three times in the course of the stories. And the narration went directly from story to story with no pause. I had a hard time figuring out where one ended and the next began.
