Emma Cline’s next book is a short story collection called Daddy, and it’s coming out soon.
Good news for all fans of strange cults, luscious writing, and page-turners: as Publishers Lunch reports, Emma Cline’s first story collection, Daddy, will officially be published in 2020 by Random House (and Chatto & Windus in the UK). As you may recall, Random House bought three books by Cline—including this collection and her bestselling The Girls—in a massive auction back in 2014.
According to the publisher, “the stories in Cline’s first collection consider the dark corners of human experience, exploring the fault lines of power between men and women, parents and children, past and present.” So I, for one, am excited. Hopefully, the new book will include her fantastic, chilling story “Marion,” which was published in The Paris Review in 2013 and earned Cline the Plimpton Prize.
