* By turns crepuscular, buoyant, delicate, wry, horrific, otherworldly, this worldly and organ-rupturingly funny collection is a vitamin-boost for the British short-story -- David Mitchell Guardian * If you want to see just how far the short story can take you, you have to buy this book -- David Robinson The Scotsman * As always with Faber, these stories are lifted by a delicate sense of otherness that suggest they inhabit a world almost imperceptibly parallel to our own Metro * I dread to think where Faber gets his inspiration from, but there's certainly no shortage of it in sight Independent on Sunday
