Summary: ""This doll's eye view is a total delight and surveys a world awash with shadowy wit and exquisite collisions of beauty and the grotesque." -Helen Oyeyemi, author of Boy, Snow, Bird "Down to its most particular details, The Doll's Alphabet creates an individual world-a landscape I have never encountered before, which now feels like it was been waiting to be captured, and waiting to captivate, all along." -Sheila Heti, author of How Should a Person Be "Marvellous. Grudova understands that the best writing has to pull off the hardest aesthetic trick-it has to be both memorable and fleeting." -Deborah Levy, author of Hot Milk Dolls, sewing machines, tinned foods, mirrors, malfunctioning bodies-by constantly reinventing ways to engage with her obsessions and motifs, Camilla Grudova has built a universe that's highly imaginative, incredibly original, and absolutely discomfiting.

She holds a degree in Art History and German from McGill University, Montreal. Her fiction has appeared in The White Review and Granta"--
