Skull Cathedral: A Vestigial Anatomy by Melissa Wiley

Skull Cathedral: A Vestigial Anatomy by Melissa Wiley

Regular price $17.95 Sale

From Autumn House Press:

In Skull Cathedral, Melissa Wiley pulls stories from the vestigial remnants of the creatures we were or could have become. The appendix, pinky toes, tonsils, male nipples, wisdom teeth, and coccyx are starting points through which Wiley explores exaltation, eroticism, grief, and desire. Using the slow evolution and odd disintegration of vestigial organs to enter the braided stories of the lives we establish for ourselves, the people we grieve, and the mysteries of youth, memory, and longing, Wiley’s lens is deeply feminist and compassionate.
