All the Names They Used for God: Stories, by Anjali Sachdeva
“One of the best collections I’ve ever read. Every single story is a standout.”—Roxane Gay
“Fuses science, myth, and imagination into a dark and gorgeous series of questions about our current predicaments.”—Anthony Doerr, author of All the Light We Cannot See
The stories in All the Names They Used for God break down genre barriers - from science fiction to American Gothic to magical realism to horror - and are united by each character’s brutal struggle with fate.
Like many of us, the characters in this collection are in pursuit of the sublime. Along the way, they must navigate the borderland between salvation and destruction.
“Strange and wonderful . . . delightfully unexpected.” - The New York Times Book Review
“Beautiful, draining - and entirely unforgettable.” - Kirkus Reviews
