Where to buy it


Rabid, intoxicating, and unusual, The Night Is A Mouth is a potent story collection that grapples with abjection, obsession and monstrosity. A girl goes missing and finds a father who’s not one. Two young women have a contest; they contest rejection. Seated before a mysterious package, an eccentric family romps through aberration and attempts to collect itself. Lessons in vomit continence incite other expulsions. Lisa Foad is a fearless storyteller, pared and exacting; The Night Is AMouth is a salient stinger from a brazen new voice.
