`An American short-story writer of intimidating talent' * Zadie Smith * `Graceful, dark, authentic and funny' * Thomas Pynchon * `Dark, concerned, confused and funny, all at the same time ... Like so much of Saunders' brilliant, crazy writing it's relevant, but not too relevant' * The Times * `You do not read Saunders' stories so much as watch them detonate on the page in front of you, like a firecracker some joker has slipped into your pudding' * New Statesman *
