Product description


'There's a transgressive thrill to Adam Marek's debut collection of short stories that's not simply a result of the potency of the subject matter... delightful.' --The Guardian

'Early McEwan meets David Cronenberg.... genuine, unsettling talent.' --The Independent

'Marek's fabulously meaty, funny writing makes the short story look really exciting again, pulling you, frame by frame, into a bright, strange future.' --Maggie Gee
