“Beautiful, mysterious, and surreal, Kirsten Alene’s MOON SNAKE is a perfect gem of a book. Luminous and sublime.” – Jeff VanderMeer
Eraserhead Press is proud to announce the release of MOON SNAKE by Kirsten Alene. In this two-novella collection, you will be transported through surreal landscapes of avocado houses, talking mastiffs and dream ships and fall in love with the fairytale-like characters. Like nothing you’ve seen from this author before, MOON SNAKE is Alene’s strongest and most poetic work to date.
My mother always said, “Nothing as sad as a moth that thinks it’s found the moon in a candle flame.”
And that is who I am, or who I am meant to have been.
I whisper under my breath, “Moon in a candle flame, moon in a candle flame.”
And it’s true. It’s sad but also beautiful.
