Lidia Yuknavitch’s bestselling novel The Small Backs of Children was the winner of the 2016 Oregon Book Award’s Ken Kesey Award for Fiction, as well as the Reader’s Choice Award. Other works include The Book of Joan, The Misfit’s Manifesto, The Chronology of Water, and Dora: A Headcase.
“This erotic, beautifully disturbing exploration of sex and violence is a fast, lyrical read, but don’t let the brevity fool you — its effects will linger long after the last page.”
– Carmen Maria Machado, on The Small Backs of Children for NPR
