"Each story in Ice Bar unsettles the reader as Kuppers' writing seamlessly slides between the familiarity of the present into strange apocalyptic visions and hidden dream worlds. Woven throughout the collection are the grounding touchstones of adaptation and interdependence, community, and raw human connection. Ice Bar elegantly expresses Kuppers' dedication to creating art that entertains while thoughtfully fostering inclusivity and social justice."
