Book Club Tour Kicks Off for Dead Girls

To celebrate the release of Dead Girls and Other Stories, Emily Geminder is holding a book club tour. Choose Emily's book for your next book club reading, and she'll be glad to schedule a meeting with your book club, in person (for those in the LA area) or over Skype.

As a special incentive, Dzanc is offering a book club special discount - take 15% off orders of eight or more copies of Dead Girls.  Use the coupon code GIRLS17, good through November 15. Read more about the collection below.

With lyric artistry and emotional force, Emily Geminder’s debut collection charts a vivid constellation of characters fleeing their own stories. A teenage runaway and her mute brother seek salvation in houses, buses, the backseats of cars. Preteen girls dial up the ghosts of fat girls. A crew of bomber pilots addresses the sparks of villagers below. In Cambodia, four young women confuse themselves with the ghost of a dead reporter. And from India to New York to Phnom Penh, dead girls both real and fantastic appear again and again: as obsession, as threat, as national myth and collective nightmare.


“An eerie convergence of female identities and experiences across time and space... Startling, far-reaching tales of women who haunt and are haunted.”
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“In her debut collection, Geminder covers a range of subjects and injects them with her own brand of liveliness and creativity...Geminder’s stories are refreshing, surprising, and evocative.”
