“Saunders' stories stretch the boundaries of reality, but his characters are often defined by their limits.  He is a master satirist in top form with this collection, but his occasionally outlandish settings never overshadow the humanity of the men, women, and children struggling through each tale.  These stories do all the things we hope good fiction will do: blow your mind and break your heart, make you laugh and make you think.  They are the kind of stories I feel grateful for, that stick in my head and heart and make me want to be a better person.”--Jessica Stockton Bagnulo, Greenlight Bookstore, Brooklyn, NY
