Praise

"Gritty, dark and sometimes very nasty, these stories are, at their best, worthy of comparison to the fairy tales of Angela Carter." 10/1/2007

"Lanagan's...ten stories delve into the crevices of nightmare, temptation, and helplessness with a mixture of earthy dialect and inventiveness that makes this collection mesmerizing, sometimes horrifying, and occasionally funny." 11/1/2007

"Langan...creates richly imagined characters whose lives and circumstances are lived as much beyond these pages as in them, requiring readers to engage in active and creative gap-filling...The stark originality of these tales may be offputting for readers with mainstream tastes, but for those eager to give their imaginations a strenuous workout, each of these stories pumps serious iron." 12/1/2007
