Karen Russell is a master of tone, somehow always perfectly capturing Florida beaches and swamps exactly as I remember them. This collection includes both of my favourite short stories ever - Proving Up and Dougbert Shackleton's Rules for Antarctic Tailgating - as well as many other creepy, funny, creepily-funny tales. --Harry

Readers familiar with ¡Hola Papi! as an advice column will recognize JP Brammer's warm and generous writing immediately. Through the years I have felt profoundly understood both by the author and his audience - such a gift in a genre I had previously felt no connection with. I wholeheartedly recommend this book, and his work as a whole, to all. --Harry
