Ananda Lima

Ananda Lima’s short story collection Craft: Stories I Wrote for the Devil is forthcoming from Tor (a Macmillan imprint). Craft is a surreal linked stories collection revolving around the absurdity of our times, art, and writing, as well as a complex view of the immigrant experience. The stories are written by a fictitious writer who sleeps with he Devil at a Halloween party in 1999 and sees him again and again throughout her life as she writes him stories about things that are both impossible and true. Kelly Link, author of Book of Love, calls it “an absolutely thrilling reminder that short stories can be the best kind of magic.”
