Publisher's Summary

The boundaries between realist and fabulist, literary and speculative, are shattered in this remarkable debut collection for listeners of Carmen Maria Machado, André Alexis, and Angélique Lalonde

A girl born in a small unnamed pueblo is blessed—or cursed—with the ability to produce valuable gems from her bodily fluids. A tired wife and mother escapes the confines of her oppressive life and body by shapeshifting into a cloud. A girl reckons with the death of her father and her changing familial dynamics while slowly, mysteriously losing her physical senses.

Infused with keen insight and presented in startling prose, the stories in this dark, magnetic collection by newcomer Rebecca Hirsch Garcia invite the listener into an uncanny world out of step with reality while exploring the personal and interpersonal in a way that is undeniably, distinctly human.

Critic Reviews

“The stories in Rebecca Hirsch Garcia’s debut collection glimmer and cut sharply, exploring fractured families, unexpected encounters with strangers, and the fantastical hidden in plain sight. Bridging tenderness and violence, and brimming with danger and magic, The Girl Who Cried Diamonds will leave you breathless.”—Anuja Varghese, author of Chrysalis
