Agnieszka Taborska in B O D Y

“When Phoebe Hicks conducted her first séance, when she became the first medium in New England, when her fame began to entice other women to embark on a similar career, no one foresaw, of course, what would distinguish her from her successors. This difference, not so crucial at first glance, fundamentally influenced Phoebe’s story.”

From The Unfinished Life Of Phoebe Hicks by Agnieszka Taborska, translated from the Polish by Ursula Phillips, and including artwork from the novel by Selena Kimball. The novel was presented at the 2012 New Literature From Europe festival in New York.

In Afterwords on Monday you will be able to read some selections from Polish reviews of the novel translated by Julia Sherwood.
