Fiction. Women's Studies. Art. Drama. Illustrated by Lavinia Hanachiuc. Second Edition. A host of characters emerge from a madwoman's dreams, populating a world as strange and magnificent as a painting by Hieronymus Bosch. A boy with one wing seeks the secret to flight. A girl with a mirror for a face, adored by all, longs to simply eat. A pregnant girl reflects on the effects of metamorphosis. The stories of BOYSGIRLS are modern myths: tales that exist within our present time but also outside it, in a place as eternal as Atlantis or Middle Earth.
