Funny, creepy, mournful, and outraged, Saunder's ingenious and superbly crafted satirical stories blaze like warning lights on the road to hell.
Booklist Full Review
Insanely inventive... Stunningly effective... The surreal Saunders magic is working.
Dark, concerned, confused and funny, all at the same time... Like so much of Saunders' brilliant, crazy writing it's relevant, but not too relevant
Ludicrously funny and outrageously prescient... Saunders's finest gift... is to construct a story of absurdist satire, then locate within it a moment of searing humanity.
You do not read Saunders' stories so much as watch them detonate on the page in front of you, like a firecracker some joker has slipped into your pudding
