A collection of stories by

 
 
"Queen of Gonzo" [Leslie] What drags love out of its gooey, schmaltzy rut and takes it for a joyride in this exuberant collection of 17 stories...No matter how brief or long, no matter how bizarre, each tale in this collection grabs readers and demands they rethink how they see all the myriad forms of love." - Publisher's Weekly Starred Review CRAZY LOVE is crazy good! Leslie What's brain is evidently crowded with strangeness, awfulness, wonderfulness, wildness, madness of all kinds...and love. Lots of love. How lucky we are that her imagination runs deep, runs true, runs onto the page in crazily beautiful stories-and lucky, so very lucky, to be holding those stories right now in our hands." - Molly Gloss, author of Dazzle of Day and Heart of Horses "If unbearable guilt makes you wish to suffer vicariously, and professionally, for others; if you suddenly find yourself the father of thousands and thousands of children; if your ambition is to occupy the Chair of Hermit Studies at the University of Oregon, or to be a ghost in a hot-air balloon, or if you have considered wearing a gorilla mask while having an abortion - CRAZY LOVE is your operating manual. These seventeen achingly funny and hilariously sad stories will give you invaluable advice on how to love, how to be crazy, how to be human." - Ursula K. Le Guin, author of Lavinia and Annals of the Western Shore
