Product Description


""Fat Girl, Terrestrial" is proof giants still walk the earth and Kellie Wells is one of that visionary breed. Wells has always stood at ease in the tall company of Flannery O'Connor and John Kennedy Toole. But in this novel her tsunami of gorgeous lingua Americana engulfs every art form. It is music and image, soaring idea and grounded intellect, hurtling drama, spirit and flesh, and every known angle--from delicate to brutal--of comedy. Magnificent."--Katherine Dunn, author of "Geek Love"

Going into any FC2 bit is about like jumping down the rabbit hole; I know it's going to be different (see FC2's motto), and I'm not sure how much plot will be a factor versus other forms of storytelling. Well's novel begins with quite a bit of emphasis on plot and goes off into many tributaries of stories from there....
