James Cooper's stories are original, clever and daring. Clearly a writer to watch. --Graham Joyce (author of "The Facts of Life")
[James Cooper] is intent on stepping inside his characters, instead of simply describing them from the outside. He calibrates his effects instead of going for shocks. He's clearly fascinated by the mournful realities (and dream-states) of life and death. It's been quite a while since I've encountered stories like this, tales that ignore topical tastes in favour of a strange view of humanity that's timeless, classical, and mysteriously sad. --Christopher Fowler (from his foreword)
