five-point-palm - Elaine Baker
“A savage, stylish revenge-fantasy, in which Baker is out to kill the established narrative of heteronormative romance. five-point-palm-exploding-heart-technique is audacious, darkly funny, and a complete bloodbath.”
“five-point-palm-exploding-heart-technique wryly flirts with the concrete and the visual, directly inverting the male gaze and the personal histories we wish we could delete but also can’t stop observing. Set beneath amber lamplight with ‘eyelids as fat as half-moons’, we feel empathy for women everywhere, together with the coiling of a silver revenge! Through the prism of technology and our 24/7 ‘feed of dreams’, Baker blows affected kisses towards the reader with the luscious aim of bringing ‘the pretty little house down’.
