Nino Cipri - Homesick: Stories

Join Third Place Books in welcoming Nino Cipri with their new story colleciton, Homesick.

Dark, irreverent, and innovative, Homesick meditates on the theme of home and our estrangement from it. In stories that foreground queer relationships and transgender or nonbinary characters, Cipri delivers the origin story for a superhero team comprised of murdered girls; a man haunted by keys that appear suddenly in his throat; and a team of scientists and activists discovering the remains of a long-extinct species of intelligent weasels.

Nino Cipri is a queer and trans/nonbinary writer, editor, and educator. They are a graduate of the Clarion Writers’ Workshop and the MFA program at the University of Kansas. Nino’s fiction and essays have been published by dozens of different venues. Nino has also written plays, screenplays, and radio features; performed as a dancer, actor, and puppeteer; and worked as a stagehand, bookseller, bike mechanic, and labor organizer.
