Bathmatics is excited to officially offer Chelsea Tadeyeske‘s short story collection “Princess Diana” for sale on our website. These stories are a modal shift for Tadeyeske in some ways but still characteristic of her previous work as a poet. The book is pocket sized and ready for continuous consumption. With illustrations and collages by Madison, WI’s Jason Lambeth of Red Pants and Painted Blond Tapes.
Princess Diana is a collection of short stories gasping from the deep empathic ditch beside the cool expressway of American dismissal. These pieces hurt without trying to, tragic comedies of living and interacting without a map. We are learning how to be by watching others turn away from and erase one another, laughing with ourselves when we can like sugar to help the medicine. With collages and sketches by Jason Lambeth from the folds of snapshot memory – there is humor and warmth here, there is turn and feel, there is a hand held out for the duration – but you are on your own from there.
