Crane, Marisa

Entry updated 20 February 2023. Tagged: Author.

(?   -    ) US poet and author, their first book, The Devil Is a Skilled Ventriloquist (coll 2017 chap), being poetry, mostly nonfantastic. Their first novel, I Keep My Exoskeletons to Myself (2023), is of some Equipoisal interest, being set in an Alternate History version of a Near Future America where the oppression of women and gender bigotry savagely interact, and scapegoating is accomplished by assigning extra shadows to the victims. An articulate Cat paces sections of the tale. The ongoing literalization of stigma depends for any felt persuasiveness through an eloquence of storytelling which Crane provides with some success.
