Wild Milk

Wild Milk Review

Wild Milk is like Borscht Belt meets Leonora Carrington; it’s like Donald Barthelme meets Pony Head; it’s like the Brothers Grimm meet Beckett in his swim trunks at the beach. In other words, this remarkable collection of stories is unlike anything else you’ve read.

“Sabrina Orah Mark is a writer of strangeness & tenderness & undeniable brilliance. I wanted to read this book aloud to everyone I’ve ever loved, & to fold it into a locket to keep close to my heart.” Elizabeth McCracken

    I love these wry, gem-like short stories. I gobbled them up like so many chips, all in one afternoon, and am now rereading them more slowly, to savor what Mark does with words. These pieces are magica...

  • Rudra

    It is an absolutely delightful and unapologetically poetic collection of short stories or sometimes prose poems. A collection so desperately needed in these times; it has enough potency to make us rea...

  • Ryan Bollenbach

    As wildly language driven as ever. The stories themselves fold into phrases. The phrases turn into jokes, the jokes turn into sublime tragedies. Many stories about family and motherhood and so many ot...

  • Alyse Bensel

    If you want biting, poignant, and wonderfully baffling short stories, many of which blur the line between poetry and prose, you've come to the right collection. Stories don't need linear time or expec...

    Sabrina Orah Mark's short stories in WILD MILK are dreamy, edgy, and dangerous. Most of us grew up with fairy tales, but Mark transforms these traditional storytelling models into modern day confessio...
