Emily Perkovich

"I haven't been able to sleep."

Confusion builds in this sleepless fever-dream, where our narrator finds themselves searching for a way out. Corvus, a group consisting of two crows and a raven, is always present and eager to assist, but are they really just chatty birds? And why does time seem to loop and reset? How does it all tie together?

Written in a surreal and interlocking lyrical prose, Swallow is an immersive journey through an insomnia-plagued mind. In this traumatic, dream-like landscape, you stumble through discomfort and horror with creatures and scenery that are rarely what they seem to be at first glance. This is a reckoning with the demons of one's past and a constant pushing through to reach one's birth.
