Sing Me Your Scars by Damien Angelica Walters is one of my “2015 Favorite Reads” in the Collections category. This one came out early in 2015, released by Apex Books.
For the past several years, the stories of Damien Angelica Walters have been appearing steadily in all the best magazines and many prominent anthologies. I’ve sought out as many of these as I could find as they appeared, but it’s great to have so many collected together. Once a writer’s work is lined up like this, story after story, finally to be read back to back, their concerns and obsessions become clarified. Here, the reader can’t help but recognize the power, emotion and elegance of which Walters is capable.
On the strength of this work, I’m really looking forward to Paper Tigers, the novel Walters has coming out this month from Dark House Press.
On Goodreads, I wrote:
A very fine collection, beautifully written, harrowing and painful. Damien Angelica Walters is one of my favorite writers.
