Praise for Jeffrey Ford:

"Outstanding. . . . Ford uses . . . incongruously lyrical phrases to infuse the everyday with a nebulous magic." - Publishers Weekly, Best Books of the Year(Starred Review)

"For lovers of the weird and fantastic and lovers of great writing, this is a treasure trove of disturbing visions, new worlds and fully realized craft." - Shelf Awareness (Starred Review)

"Properly creepy, but from time to time deliciously funny and heart-breakingly poignant, too." - Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
