"Kelly Link is the exact best and strangest short story writer on earth that you have never heard of at the exact moment you are reading these words and making them slightly inexact. Now pay for the book." - Jonathan Lethem

"This small-press short-story collection by a young American writer is a joy - a very tired word, and not one I use lightly. I've not been so moved and affected - and dammit, yes, inspired - by a book for a long time." - China Miéville
