"Paul Park is a brilliant, stunning, frightening writer, a major talent."
"Paul Park is one of the most gifted and subtle story writers I know."
"Entering a Paul Park universe means slipping into an eerily compelling plane where nearly palpable visions transform as disturbing as the images in a sexually charged fever dream."
"Complex, elusive, haunting, written in a transparent prose that slips you from one world to another with prestidigitous ease."
–Ursula K. Le Guin
"Paul Park's short stories are blunt, funny, distressing, strange, true–all these qualities, often all at once."
–Kim Stanley Robinson
