Portland, OR— April 7, 2020 — Unsolicited Press announces immediate availability of THE THINGS YOU LEFT by Raki Kopernik, an author based in Minneapolis. THE THINGS YOU LEFT is a thirty-seven story collection built on magical realism and seemingly inconsequential moments between sweet and strange loners that meet in the space between the heart and the mind.
A couple throw plates at each other for therapy, a cat shape shifts into a woman, a man is obsessed with canned tuna, a woman relives time with her lover through objects left behind. Sometimes humorous, sometimes sad, The Things You Left explores love, addiction, relationships, and loss.
Raki is a queer, Jewish fiction and poetry writer. She is the author of The Memory House (The Muriel Press 2019) which was a finalist for both the Red Hen Press Nonfiction Award and the Minnesota Book Award, and The Other Body (Dancing Girl Press 2017). Her work has appeared in numerous publications and has been nominated for several other awards, including the Pushcart Prize for fiction. She lives in Minneapolis.
THE THINGS YOU LEFT (978-1-950730-19-3) is available as a paperback ($16.00; 150p.) and ebook, and can be purchased from all major retailers. Ingram Book Group distributes the title to the market.
