Question: “If you had to think of a motion you’ve made more than any other in your whole life, what would it be?” Response: “I don’t want to be a motion.”

In her debut collection of fifteen short stories, Amina Cain makes ordinary worlds strange and spare and beautiful. A woman carves invisible images onto ice, a pair of black wings appears in front of a house, and a restless teacher sits in a gallery of miniature rooms. As Miranda Mellis describes, “The revelatory pleasure and hope [in these stories] emanate from an artistry driven by ethical desire.” “I highly recommend reading I Go To Some Hollow,” says Bhanu Kapil, “because of what it teaches you about love, and the relationship between love and writing.”
