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
