Maud Casey

City of Incurable Women

Available February 2022 from Bellevue Literary Press

"In exquisite prose, Maud Casey has built a city inside a book, a city that is a hospital, a museum, a dance, a body in ecstasy just outside the frame. On every page of this achingly beautiful book, Casey brings a wise and feral attention to the so-called incurables of the 'era of soul science'—Augustine, Louise, Marie, Geneviève, and a chorus of nameless others singing their private beginnings and public ends." Danielle Dutton, author of SPRAWL and Margaret the First
