Staff Reviews


Quiet, domestic fiction meets Guillermo del Toro in this pithy novella when a lonely housewife meets her own creature from the black lagoon. Electric, fascinating and funny as hell.

— From Devon D. Staff Picks

December 2017 Indie Next List


“This book, which New Directions has unearthed from the 1980s, is such a surprising, delightful gem. It's like a mix of Lucia Berlin's knack for character, dialogue, and tone with the sci-fi realism that's become so popular lately. A strange, beautiful book by a writer who's getting her rightful recognition (and who may have predicted the current avocado craze?!).”
— Jacob Rogers, Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe, Asheville, NC
