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