When Watched

A collection of stories by

Lambda Literary Award Finalist
Longlisted for the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize for Debut Fiction & The Story Prize

"Core captures a precious slice of what it is to be human. . . . She reaches moments of extraordinary grace." - The New York Times Book Review

"Pick up this book and prepare to face sublime recognition." - Rookie

"Full of dazzling insight and empathy." - Refinery 29

Refreshing, witty, and absolutely close to the heart, Core's twenty stories, set in and around New York City, have an other-worldly quality along with a deep seriousness - even a moral seriousness. What we know of identity is smashed and in its place, true individuals emerge, each bristling with a unique sexuality, a belief-system all their own. Reminiscent of Jane Bowles, William Burroughs, and Colette, her writing glows with an authenticity that is intoxicating and rare.
