Product description

Review

A wonderfully vertiginous, through-the-looking-glass story collection, packed with Powers s one-of-a-kind humor and insight. With his extraordinary imagination and vitalizing prose, Powers can make anything live, and does. He is fluently conversant with the Devil, the dead, children, animals, astronauts, and newlywedsand this is just a partial roster of the wild crew aboard this ship. Goofy and profound, lyrical and exhilarating, Gravity Changes is a thrilling, rocket-fueled debut.
Karen Russell
Here is a collection for those in love with language, in love with wonder, and in love with the transformative power of storytelling. These stories will make you laugh and cry and wonder how exactly Zach Powers does it. Powers is brilliant, an ecstatic and exciting new voice.
Bryan Hurt
Gravity Changes is an unceasingly inventive and sharply observed collection of short stories. In it, Powers paints a quirky, skewed world, but one that's wholly recognizable. Readers will encounter characters who defy gravity, lightbulbs incarnate, portals to other dimensions, and co-workers who read messages of guilt etched on one another's foreheads. The collection is darkly comic, and sometimes otherworldly, but always perceptive, exploring a landscape of human emotions: loss, longing, loneliness, and nostalgia. Fantastical and hilarious, profound and melancholy, Gravity Changes is a force of nature, and Zach Powers is a major talent to watch.
