Excerpt from Farid Tali’s Prosopopoeia at World Literature Today

9006387478_3c97550657_b“The stomach opens up in its center. A minor tear that cannot be seen but which can be identified by the sound it makes and which comes to disturb one’s contemplation of the body, as would an insect flying in the midst of a derelict church. A curtain drawn aside, revealing a hideous pit haunted by black: everything is imperceptible here in this stomach giving itself, discovering the center of its nakedness: obscure entrails that the viscera flee.”

Action Books will publish Prosopopeia by Farid Tali in the fall of 2016 (trans Aditi Machado).
