SOMETHING DEAD IN EVERYTHING is a collection of flash fiction that explores the intricacies, intimacies, and strangeness of grief, in whatever form it may take; in it the reader is weaved into the fabric of everything and nothing at once--unsettling, dark truths meet the numbness we will all come to understand one day.
Stabile weaves together multiple vignettes with perfect articulation. Nothing is out of place, and everything packs a punch. The opening story, To Wash and Dry a Vessel, is an absolute banger that I will remember every time I clutch my morning coffee to my chest.--Tiffany Meuret, author of Little Bird
I could never have imagined a collection of stories so delightful about death A girl with a mean stepfather composes a dream list of ways he might perish. A mother's ghost fills a Sudoku grid with 911s. A dead baker takes new form as a vengeful gingerbread man. Stabile's lively macabre inventions enchanted me with their comic hauntings and thrilling rage.--Polly Rosenwaike, author of Look How Happy I'm Making You: Stories
