In the Garden of Broken Things
Flutter Press 2016
Bodies merge and drift apart, solidify and falter, and, most poignantly, revel in their imperfections in In the Garden of Broken Things. These pieces leave readers adrift in a maze of assorted ephemera on a cosmic scale. But rather than puzzle, Lucero deftly leads us through these character’s complicated and intimate lives filled with longing, loss, and continuing forward amidst unpredictable yet promising futures.
