The House of Skin

Research output: Book/ReportBook


THE HOUSE OF SKIN is a literary surrealist horror/thriller novelette for fans of Carmen Maria Machado and Clarice Lispector.

At a gallery one night, a young sculptor meets Cyan, an art collector with a turquoise beard, a detached charm, and a wife recently dead. Bewitched by him and his posse of elegant friends, the sculptor agrees to accompany them to a party and finds herself plunged into their world of eccentric decadence. Cyan and his clique are worshipped by flocks of struggling artists, all desperate to be discovered. When Cyan invites her to complete a residency at his mansion home, the sculptor believes her big break has finally come.

But what is it about the house that so unnerves her? And how much will she sacrifice for success?
