Believer Review: Can You Show Me the Limit of the Body?

The Believer Magazine summarizes the central question of Amina Cain’s I Go To Some Hollow as,”Can you show me the limit of the body?” The review continues:

Cain’s characters are uncomfortable bodies who exist and meditate in the strangeness of space. It is fitting that one of her characters is a dancer—it is the awkward, lingering dance between bodies in space, the ambiguous gesture or glance, that best distinguishes Cain’s fiction.
