A short-story collection from one of America's brightest young talents.
“To read Rivka Galchen is to enter a wonderland where the bizarre and the mundane march in unlikely lockstep… [the reader] is left feeling oddly exhilarated after these disjointed adventures.”
— Michael Lindgren, Washington Post
