Build Your House Around My Body
If you enjoyed Midnight's Children, then you’ll love Build Your House Around My Body.
“This epic literary ghost story tells the parallel tales of the colonization of a land at its grandest ambition and that of the degradation of two young women at its most fixed. In this, it easily garners comparisons to the genius of such books as The Tiger's Wife and Midnight's Children. Told in a sinuous and surreal fashion, Kupersmith skillfully draws a maze of connections between myth, history and the present in the story of a young woman who goes missing in modern-day Vietnam. In the Vietnam of Build Your House Around My Body, snakes can have two heads, smoke can be sentient, dogs can swap souls with humans, and everyone believes in ghosts—and you will too. This is the ambitious, kaleidoscopic work of a young writer to watch.”Rachel, The Book Table
