Sabrina Orah Mark is the author of the poetry collections The Babies and Tsim Tsum. Wild Milk is her first book of fiction. She lives in Athens, Georgia with her husband, Reginald McKnight, and their two sons.


Wild Milk is like Borscht Belt meets Leonora Carrington; it’s like Donald Barthelme meets Pony Head; it’s like the Brothers Grimm meet Beckett in his swim trunks at the beach. In other words, this remarkable collection of stories is unlike anything else you’ve read.

“The stories drift in the way of the best fairy tales—released from dependence on narrative sensibility to become both more odd and more true than any mere fiction…Stories in which laughter is sometimes the only response to sorrow, beauty is strange, and love is fierce and unending. A necessary book for our perilous age.” —Kirkus Reviews [starred review]
