Honeysuckle Press, WT’s sister press, is proud to present Things That Cannot Be Tamed by Khristian Mecom!

Introduced by Lidia Yuknavitch, Things That Cannot Be Tamed explores three generations of women as they survive, struggle, and thrive in a harsh and beautiful Alaskan landscape.

These stories wonder and interrogate — does the place you’re from intrinsically define you? Or is that a choice you make? Mecom weaves three tales into a saga of womanhood, self-determination, and the magic of stretching into the unknown.

In these stories, love and survival circle each other sharply within a landscape of the fantastic and magical — Mecom welcomes us to her hearth and illuminates truths believed in the bones.

Head to the Honeysuckle website to read an excerpt from the book and an interview with Khristian, as well as an excerpt of Lidia Yuknavitch’s introduction and praise from Kelly Link and Hala Alyan!
