Portland Diary is a collection of short stories about women faced with impossible situations. Each of the seven narratives unfolds its heightened, speculative version of the impossible everyday reality we find ourselves in as racialized people, queer and colonial and mentally ill subjects, enemies or collaborators to the bloodthirsty Western imperial machine, disposable labor for a capitalist system that threatens to devour the world.
For readers who would like to know more about the content before reading, there are depictions of violence in many of the stories (except for "Subject", "Beach House", and "Cascadia") as well depictions/discussions of sex (especially in "Subject", "Beach House", and "Valeria"), and abuse ("Subject"). There are no depictions of sexual violence in the book.
This soft cover print edition of Portland Diary is 180 pages long; the cover features art by Aoi Fukuyama (IG: @aoimakesart). Please expect a delay of one to two weeks between the time you order the book and its delivery.
