In this exquisite debut short story collection, people with unusual jobs and lives embark on extraordinary journeys. A taboo romance breaks the laws of gravity. Albert Einstein writes letters to the daughter he abandoned. A female physicist meets Stephen Hawking in a bar.... In the closing novella, All Those Stairs, an elevator operator with a genius IQ rides up and down all day enclosed in a metal box. Author Erin Stalcup explores these lives with remarkable compassion, depth, and insight examining loss and longing, and how our bodies and minds can be both weighted and freed. And Yet It Moves is a powerful combination of both absurdist and realist-stories that literally defy gravity.

Editorial Reviews

"And Yet It Moves is an exquisite collection, a breath of new air, fresh and sparkling. What pleasure in seeing our world as Erin Stalcup does, the magic revealed in among the mundane, in accepted laws of nature, in the weary human heart-which in these stories is repeatedly revived. A gift to us all, this is a lyrical winning argument for adoring the 'gleaming and grotesque' beauty of our fragile, surprising lives. Bravo!" -Robin Black, author of Life Drawing
