About The Case of Elena and All That Went Wrong
What do a time-stopping office worker, a woman receiving a full body transplant, a visitor from the nineteenth century, and dead people preserved in ice trays have to do with each other? They all inhabit the weird, fantastic, and sometimes disturbing world of The Case of Elena and All That Went Wrong. Interlocking stories form a narrative that explores the nature of friendship, love, and identity with a paranormal twist.
