Here’s the book description:

With In the Palace of Repose, her debut collection of mostly unpublished work, Holly Phillips accomplished the improbable.

Her accomplished prose sang with a unique voice, seamlessly blending emotion, insight, and craft.

Portraying human reaction to dire change or extreme circumstance, combining the real intruded upon by the fantastic or the fantastic grounded in reality, Phillips describes the world as it is, as it may be, as something impossible yet entirely acceptable, enthralling the reader with her words.
