Summary
Six short stories with subjects ranging from a dejected teenager who discovers that the universe is communicating with him through talismanic objects left behind in a seagull's nest to two vampires in a sun-drenched lemon grove who try helplessly to slake their thirst for blood
Summary
Award-winning author Karen Russell's latest short story collection blends whimsy and horror in equal measure. Her daringly inventive characters range from centuries-old vampires with surprisingly touching human desires, to a former U.S. president now reincarnated as a horse. Russell's dry humor and keen eye for relatable emotional experiences will lure readers deeply into these surreal vignettes. - Description by Shauna Griffin
