The Silences of Ararat coming in March

Aqueduct Press will be releasing The Silences of Ararat, a new novella from L. Timmel Duchamp on March 15, 2021. The Silences of Ararat tells an old, old story: a king loses what passes for his mind and accuses his perfect trophy wife of adultery and prepares to have her put to death. It’s just another case of temporary insanity, right? Often in such cases, there’s collateral damage, and that’s the case in this story. But who, in a monarchy like Ararat, can oppose the king? Enter, Paulina, stage left, a sculptor with a hidden talent, a veritable dea ex machina with her own ideas about how this story should end.

The Silences of Ararat is Duchamp’s version of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale written for a post-Trump America.
