An interview with Chrissy Kolaya

Dzanc Books

“I’ve found that the best things for me to write about are the things I’m insatiably curious about.” So says Chrissy Kolaya, whose debut novel Charmed Particles published from Dzanc last week. Chrissy’s poems and stories have appeared in Norton and Milkweed anthologies, the 50th Anniversary Best of Crazyhorse collection, and a number of literary journals. She authored the poetry collection Any Anxious Body and co-founded the Prairie Gate Literary Festival. Charmed Particles is a living museum for the curious, investigating everything from particle physics and world travel to love and the complexities of hope. Sabrina Wise got to talk with Chrissy about her inspirations, book nerdery, lion maulings, and understanding opinions very different from our own, among other topics. Read on for the full interview!

Now Available: We Five

Dzanc Books

Happy pub day to Mark Dunn’s We Five, which is now available:

An amalgamation of five novels woven together to tell the same continuous story, Mark Dunn’s stirring tale traces the escapades of five young women—who dub themselves “We Five”—and their suitors through a small mill town outside of Manchester, England in 1859; San Francisco on the eve of the 1906 earthquake and fire; Sinclair Lewis’s fictional Zenith, Winnemac in 1923; London during the Blitz of autumn, 1940; and in a small town in northern Mississippi in 1997. The women slowly become enraptured by their suitors, but little do they know the young men are playing an increasingly villainous and sinister game—the results of which hold deadly consequences and will set in motion an unlikely and devastating chain of events, the likes of which will change the lives of “We Five” forever.
