"Homebodies will leave readers entertained and enlightened—and maybe a little terrified." — Literary Review of Canada"Unsettling and creepy." — CBC Weekend Morning Show"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 about the living who are isolated, the deceased who infiltrate our quotidian realms, and all those lacunas that quiver between — uncanny and sometimes welcome spectres of love." — Alberta ViewsHomebodies 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.
