About the Book

”Celeste Rita Baker’s stories balance heartache and hilarity with poetic, uncompromising prose. This collection sings ancient songs with a modern beat. It is fully alive.” –Daniel Jose Older, author of Salsa Nocturna and editor of Long Hidden from History

Back, Belly, and Side is full of Celeste Rita Baker’s special story magic. With tales of wisdom, wonderment, and new world lore, she creates characters that speak and leap off the page to deliver the best gift of all–deep belly laughter.” –Sheree Renée Thomas, Shotgun Lullabies: Stories & Poems

”…this collection is worth a read. The characters are beautifully drawn and the situations they find themselves in are, simultaneously, real and far-fetched. Wonderful use of language and explorations of parenthood, reality, and love.” — Kate O’Connor, Abyss & Apex
