Description

Teri Vlassopoulos’s stories are sharp, accurate, at times dark, but told with balance and skill. The innocence and clarity of her narrative voice reveals new and unexpected layers. Vlassopoulos brings readers into her characters' worlds; making their desires intelligible, showing how they frame their live's events in terms of abstract superstitions, allowing us to feel what they feel. Bats or Swallows is a debut collection of excellent short fiction, with a style and tone reminiscent of Julie Orringer’s How to Breathe Underwater.

Editorial Reviews

“Bats or Swallows manages to evoke not just the uncertainty and fear of young adulthood, but its magic and inexplicable excitement as well.”Quill & Quire


"Vlassopoulos has found a way to carry over the wide-eyed curiosity and innate goodness of childhood into the mysterious, often sad, often tragic world of adulthood. The confidence in the voice, the originality of style and the achingly beautiful images are evidence of greatness to come from this engaging young writer."Montreal Review of Books
