'Tales as playful and emotionally resonant as they are disturbing...delightful.'
The Guardian

'Adam Marek is one of the best things to have happened to the short story this century. His stories might be strange, delicious or haunting - but they're always compelling. Any day now the word "Marekian" is going to enter the language. Get in on the act early. Read him now.'
Alison MacLeod

'...this bold young writer is refreshing the form.'
Financial Times
