Book Cult - BELLY UP

Deep Vellum Books is excited to host Book Cult! Our very own bookstore book club! Now this isn’t your regular-degular-schmegular book club. We won’t always follow the traditional book club format but we’ll be discussing a book from some of our favorite small presses every other month. Expect giveaways, special guests, games, and most of all new friends! See you there!

Our January book club choice will be BELLY UP by Rita Bullwinkel published by A Strange Object

About the Book

BELLY UP is a story collection that contains ghosts, mediums, a lover obsessed with the sound of harps tuning, teenage girls who believe they are actually plants, gulag prisoners who outsmart a terrible warden, and carnivorous churches. Throughout these grotesque and tender stories, characters question the bodies they've been given and what their bodies require to be sustained.
