""Fat Girl, Terrestrial" is proof giants still walk the earth and Kellie Wells is one of that visionary breed. Wells has always stood at ease in the tall company of Flannery O'Connor and John Kennedy Toole. But in this novel her tsunami of gorgeous lingua Americana engulfs every art form. It is music and image, soaring idea and grounded intellect, hurtling drama, spirit and flesh, and every known angle--from delicate to brutal--of comedy. Magnificent."--Katherine Dunn, author of "Geek Love"
