Pearls from Their Mouth

Pearls from Their Mouth

This work is built of stories and provocations - like the birth of a pearl, it transforms that which irritates, layer by layer. Through speculative fiction and critical essays, Pear Nuallak explores what happens when messy, desiring bodies collide with the hard edge of power. The world's neat categories are unmade and rewritten, revealing that racial capitalism's myths are just as much fantasies as Thai bird princesses and transgender magic. Moving playfully across folktale, horror, satire and critique, Nuallak examines how different beings are formed politically, bodily and emotionally.
