Wild Milk

Wild Milk Review

Wild Milk is like Borscht Belt meets Leonora Carrington; it’s like Donald Barthelme meets Pony Head; it’s like the Brothers Grimm meet Beckett in his swim trunks at the beach. In other words, this remarkable collection of stories is unlike anything else you’ve read.

“Sabrina Orah Mark is a writer of strangeness & tenderness & undeniable brilliance. I wanted to read this book aloud to everyone I’ve ever loved, & to fold it into a locket to keep close to my heart.” Elizabeth McCracken

    Sabrina Orah Mark's WILD MILK is a far out ride. "Mother at the Dentist" is now one of my favorite short stories, even though it is way more Dora Carrington than Elizabeth Stroud. The timing, rhythm, ...
