Fiction for Adult Readers
Body of Work
Body of Work collects DiMarco's best stories of the year. In 2019, Blue Forge Press selected nine authors and sent them monthly writing prompts for twelve months. They were radically diverse people in terms of experience, style, ideology, class, politics, race, sexuality, and religion, but they all gave a year of their creative lives to craft their best work. After a two decade sabbatical spent writing for film and television, bestselling novelist and award-winning poet Jennifer DiMarco returns to prose with Body of Work, a collection of no-holds-barred, untamed stories intended for mature readers. Deeply revealing, lush with details and complicated characters inhabiting fantastical worlds, DiMarco’s four decades as a radical storyteller across multiple mediums elevates her work whether she’s exploring gender, sexuality, dimensional travel, racism, virtual reality, cloning, class, or redemption. Body of work is undiluted, unaltered, and raw, collecting all twelve stories written by DiMarco plus an extensive interview and a thirteenth bonus story written in 2020. The autographed edition of this book ships directly from the publisher via USPS First Class Mail. Discover all nine authors in Trinity Winter, Trinity Spring, Trinity Summer, Trinity Autumn, and The Trinity Guidebook for all one hundred seventeen stories.
