9780062059567 â€œThe debut of an electric literary talent. Brilliantly quirky, often moving, always gorgeously told....Bravo for this fabulous American fiction!â€ â€”Chang-Rae Lee, New York Times bestselling author of Native Speaker â€œA wonderful story collection thatâ€™s as wide and rich and complex as the geography it spans.â€ â€” Ben Fountain, PEN/Hemingway award-winning author of Brief Encounters with Che Guevera â€œTenorio is a deep and original writer, and Monstress is simply a beautiful book.â€ â€”Jessica Hagedorn, author of Dogeaters A luminous collection of heartbreaking, vivid, startling, and gloriously unique stories set amongst the Filipino-American communities of California and the Philippines, Monstress heralds the arrival of a breathtaking new talent on the literary scene: Lysley Tenorio.
