Bishakh Som’s new graphic collection Apsara Engine, out this April from the Feminist Press, has been described as “a stunning blend of mythology, futurity, and courageous tenderness” (Franny Choi) and “erupting with queer intimacies and witty banter in eight eerie and tender stories” (The Rumpus).
Below, read “Throat,” a story from the collection.
