            Reviews:      'Collective Gravities,' by Chloe N. Clark is reviewed by Rebecca Lorenzo.

"As in the collection’s titular story, 'The Collective Gravity of Stars,' the reader experiences the world shifting beneath their feet. Nonetheless, the distance between the worlds Clark creates in just a few pages and the readers’ own provides a sort of safety through which readers can experience this dissonance or miscalibration. Moreover, the open-ended nature of each chapter mimics the unknowability of death and the incoherence of loss, both of which figure prominently in the stories as well." - Lorenzo
