Having heard good things about Karin Tidbeck from friends, I was impatient to see Jagannath hit the shelves. She lives up to her hype. The book itself is a collection of short stories, and if you enjoy the strange, or the odd, or the slightly disturbing, or a mixture of all three, this book is a chocolate box of delights. There's wild fantasy and weird sci-fi, all with a darkly clever edge which leaves you wanting more, wondering what happens to each character next. The author grabs your attention, and doesn't let go. In fact, I read from cover to cover in one sitting initially, then went back for another read through, only to find myself swept from front cover to back in one sitting again, a rarity in a book I'm not familiar with.

In conclusion, this is well worth a read, and I look forward to reading more of her work in the future!

This is an exquisite collection of short stories. Each one is strange, surreal, mysterious and beautiful and without fail, by the time you reach the end of each tale, you're left wondering just what it was you passed through. The writing is simple and elegant and conveys the real feeling that you are being given a very intimate and private glimpse into the haunting realm in which these wonderful stories exist. The characters you read about are so well conveyed that you find yourself 'hooked' onto them and to be truthful, I really cannot remember reading a book where in a few simple pages, I felt so engaged with them all.

These characters, their stories and the world they live in will linger in your mind long after you've finished reading and as has been said, one pass is not enough - as soon as I finished, I started over again! It really is a rather special feeling to take a few steps into the unreality of this book. The trick is remembering to come back out again. I very much look forward to seeing what the future holds for this supremely talented author!

Redolent of Karen Blixen - to me, at least. These stories have a surreal and supernatural quality. The author is writing in English, which is remarkable. The stories are remarkable in themselves.

This book is fabulous. Dark, puzzling, disturbing, disgusting, and extremely entertaining. An Instagram friend and I are using it as the inspiration for a project.

Format: Paperback
Thirteen short stories from a Swedish writer writing in English. One - "Some Letters for Ove Lindstrom" - is worth reading because it is plausible and well-told. The rest aren't. They are fragments of invented worlds that fail to convince. There's nothing wrong with telling strange tales but these are largely pointless: "Pyret" is tedious; "Aunts" is just daft.

Somebody who earns a living from writing once told me that young writers lack the experience to deal with many of life's issues so they rely on inventing imaginary worlds as a substitute. That acurately describes this collection: inventing odd scenarios that go nowhere and leave nothing behind. If the author matures as a person and a writer she may use her imagination to write about people, with their problems, emotions and attempts at solutions. But there's a long way to go between here and there.
