A careful study on estrangement and loss, The Price of a Small Hot Fire excavates the archetypal horrors of monstrous motherhood, from abandonment and unsteady reconciliation to the grave. Experimental and intimate, E.F. Schraeder’s collection gives voice to a semi-autobiographical examination of a griefscape from a queer lens.
Pre-order a signed copy at https://rawdogscreaming.com/books/the-price-of-a-small-hot-fire/.
“E.F. Schraeder’s wonderful collection The Price of a Small Hot Fire is a gleaming poetic knife: strong, sharp, and heart-carving.”
– Lucy A. Snyder, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Exposed Nerves
“Schraeder writes with teeth sharpened by decades of grit and despair; vicious and morose in equal measure.”
– Anton Cancre, author of This Story Doesn’t End the Way We Want All the Time
