Michelle's Spells

A Spell for Everything and Nothing at the Same Time




"Storylandia 3, The Wapshott Journal of Fiction is pleased to present Dead Girl, Live Boy, a novella by Michelle Brooks. Dead Girl, Live Boy is an unflinching view of a haunted family landscape scattered with undetonated landmines that threaten the characters’ fragile existences. Set in a crumbling Detroit as the millennium approaches, Dead Girl, Live Boy calls to mind the works of Hubert Selby Jr. and an urban Tennessee Williams. Brooks creates a darkly comic and claustrophobic world that warrants attention. Both despairing and hopeful, her novella succeeds as both a survivor’s story and a cautionary tale."
