Staff Reviews

A dark, mysterious, erotic, feverish collection of short stories. From werewolves, Hansel + Gretel, and many other myths and folktales, Pereira takes readers on a dreamlike journey that lingers long after it's over.

— From Elon


A Dream Between Two Rivers: Stories of Liminality is both literary and speculative, both magically real and viscerally strange in the tradition of Angela Carter, Karen Russell, and Jorge Luis Borges. In this collection, KL Pereira weaves elements of fairy tale, folklore, and myth into the lives of women, children, and immigrants. Her lucid prose underscores the tenacity of those who are most vulnerable, who live on edges between neat and clear definitions of who they are and who they want to be. Free of normative ideas of gender, class, race, and sexuality, Pereira explores rebirth amidst darkness.
