Leni Zumas writes wonderful, dark fiction, and her latest, Red Clocks, imagines a Mike Pence-approved future where abortion is illegal and women have fewer civil liberties than embryos (doesn’t sound “imagined” at all, actually). It’s somehow also supposed to be funny and good. How will Zumas pull off such a delicate balance? I have no idea, but I can’t wait to find out.
