"Homebodies will leave readers entertained and enlightened - and maybe a little terrified." - Literary Review of Canada
"LeBlanc surprises and disturbs, to the reader's intense anguish - in this collection's case, a good thing." - Winnipeg Free Press
"Original, inherently fascinating, and with a narrative storytelling style that is ideal for Gothic fiction and the short story format. . . a highly recommended pick." - Midwest Book Review
Homebodies is an uncanny and ghostly debut with stories that provoke dread, abjection, and horror. The tales are intertwined and linked like a chain of dried daisies or butterfly legs: someone you used to know is on trial for murder. You work at a funeral home. Your dead grandmother calls you on the phone. You pin and preserve butterflies on a corkboard as a strange girl knocks on your door. You put a bike lock on the fridge. You sleepwalk. You attend a party. You get sick. You get an IV infusion. You don't get better.
The stories in Homebodies show that you don't need a house to be haunted - the body can do that all on its own.
