books about places that don't exist Public

Created and curated by casey

semi-realistic modern fiction about places that don't exist.

real enough to comprehend, unreal enough to tell the truth.

sometimes the amalgamation of various cultures, other times adjacent to existent cultures. somewhat bleak, but certainly post-kafkaesque. not strictly a commentary.

a way to examine how we exist together and how we might exist differently.
