Izzy Wasserstein reading, and conversation with Naseem Jamnia

Alibi Bookshop and Tachyon Publications are proud to present author Izzy Wasserstein and her sci-fi debut “These Fragile Graces, This Fugitive Heart” on Saturday, March 23rd at 4:30! Izzy will read and be in conversation with one of our previous and favorite guests, Naseem Jamnia, author of “The Bruising of Qilwa.”

In a queer, noir technothriller of fractured identity and corporate intrigue, a trans woman faces her fear of losing her community as her past chases after her. This bold, thought-provoking debut science-fiction novella from a Lambda Award finalist is an exciting and unpredictable look at the fluid nature of our former and present selves.

Security expert Dora left her anarchist commune over safety concerns. But when her ex-girlfriend Kay is killed, everyone at the commune is suddenly a potential suspect. In the remains of Kansas City, which the government has all but abandoned, Dora knows there will be no justice unless she solves the murder herself.

But Kay’s death is only one of several shocking incidents. A strange new drug is circulating, people are disappearing, and a war between two nefarious corporations is looming. As Dora untangles a terrible conspiracy, she must also come face-to-face with assailants from her pre-transition past.

It’s already getting fantastic reviews:
