From the author of Heartbreaker, a disquieting
collection tracing the destructive consequences of the
desire for connection
A man, forgotten by the world, takes care of his deaf
brother while euthanizing dogs for a living. A stepbrother
so desperately wants to become his stepsibling that he rapes
his girlfriend. In Maryse Meijer’s decidedly dark and
searingly honest collection Rag, the desperate human
desire for connection slips into a realm that approximates
Meijer’s explosive debut collection, Heartbreaker,
reinvented sexualized and romantic taboos, holding
nothing back. In Rag, Meijer’s fearless follow-up,
she shifts her focus to the dark heart of intimacies of all
kinds, and the ways in which isolated people’s yearning for
community can breed violence, danger, and madness. With
unparalleled precision, Meijer spins stories that leave you
troubled and slightly shaken by her uncanny ability to
elicit empathy for society’s most marginalized people.
