Spotlight Fiction: With Teeth by Natanya Pulley

February 11, 2020 at 7:00 PM

Navajo (Diné) fiction writer Natanya Ann Pulley reads from her latest short story collection, With Teeth, which Ramona Ausubel calls “as relentless as it is generous, as heartbreaking as it is beautiful.”


About With Teeth

“Part creation myth, part surreal horror story, part smart parable of the consumption and commodification of vulnerable bodies, With Teeth, in all of its wry humor, shapeshifting, and haunting violence, heralds the debut of a remarkable and endlessly-imaginative voice.”
—Lee Ann Roripaugh, Author of Tsunami vs. the Fukushima 50

Experimenting with voice, form, and genre, Natanya Ann Pulley crafts a chorus of women’s voices who are in the process of reclaiming and telling their own stories as they slip through the cracks of our spacial and temporal reality. This collection explores how we tell stories, personally and collectively as a society, as we become stories ourselves. Through turns haunting, playful, tragic, and comedic, Pulley crafts a fever-dream surreal collection that will linger with you long after you finish reading.
