Diving Into the Faery Handbag: On Fabulism
Electric Lit, 2016
“Fabulism makes the emotional reality the actual reality. It’s more real to confront your demons when they are in the room with you. So, you can’t escape. Amber Sparks writes that ‘It’s a perfect time to turn ourselves inside out by turning the world around us outside in.’ Meaning fabulism privileges how it feels –it’s real because it feels real.”
