Welcome to the fabulous mind of Kelly Link . . . It has taken Link ten years to produce her new story collection, Get in Trouble, and it is just as brilliant as her last * * New York Times Book Review * * When it comes to literary magic, Link is the real deal: clever, surprising, affecting, fluid and funny * * San Francisco Chronicle * * Smashing . . . sensational . . . Each of these stories presents the reader with the same setup: Remain in your narrative comfort zone, or venture into Link's uncharted sea of troubles. Come on. Live a little * * O: The Oprah Magazine * * Marvelous . . . As a writer Kelly Link is possessed of many magical powers, but to me what's most notable about her new collection, Get in Trouble, is its astonishing freedom. . . . Link knows there's nothing she's 'supposed' to do; her imaginative freedom is unmitigated by a need to counterbalance the weirdness with explanation -- MEG WOLITZER Absurd and magical * * Stylist * * Link's real skill is making the insane seem utterly normal * * Bookmunch * * Beautifully written, with light and lightness balanced against darkness and hidden depth. The stories in Get In Trouble confirm once again that Kelly Link is a modern virtuoso of the form. Playful and subversive required reading for anyone who loves short fiction -- JEFF VANDERMEER A bizarre yet emotionally fulfilling trip into the unknown * * Financial Times * * Kelly Link is the author whose books I would take to the proverbial desert island, because her books are dream-oases. Each one of these 'short stories' feels infinitely vast once you are inside it, like the enchanted castles and bottomless wells in fairytales. Link's work is always darkly funny, sexy, frightening, and truly weird - she can dismantle and remake the world in a paragraph. Since Magic for Beginners, I've been pacing the docks, waiting for more Kelly Link. Get in Trouble offers further proof that she belongs on every reader's book shelf -- KAREN RUSSELL The most darkly playful voice in American fiction -- MICHAEL CHABON This is art that re-enchants the world. Who needs tediously believable situations, O. Henry endings or even truthfulness to life? Give us magic; give us wonder. What matter most in pure storytelling are style and visionary power. If your voice is hypnotic enough, you can make readers follow you anywhere * * Washington Post * * Kelly Link is one of my all-time favourite writers, and the fact that she's living and is still getting better? By God, that's a small club. She is unique. You know who else would love her? Kafka and Lewis Carroll. Like them, she knows things the rest of us don't. But she also knows things we all know: what it feels like to be in love, to want to be in love, to be alone, to want to be alone, to be disappointed in people, to try again. She makes those old heartbreaks glow with strange, new lights. -- ARTHUR PHILLIPS Brilliantly off-kilter . . . she sends the world of popular culture spinning off in directions so unexpected they take your breath away or make you laugh at their familiar strangeness * * Psychologies * * Franz Kafka with a better understanding of lady's footwear and bad first dates. -- KAREN RUSSELL With Get in Trouble, Kelly Link continues to prove just how much of a literary tightrope walker she really is. Her prose is conveyed in details so startling and fine that each one is like a firework in the brain. You work up a sweat just waiting for the next sentence to land. This is why we read, crave, need, can't live without short stories * * TEA OBREHT * * Kelly Link is the literary descendant of Jorge Luis Borges and Franz Kafka -- AUDREY NIFFENEGGER In this utterly astonishing new collection, Kelly Link demonstrates a perfect and completely mature command of the entirely unexpected, ever-evolving, self-examining, deeply original and personal, emotion-riddled kind of story only Kelly Link is capable of writing. Another way to say this is: in these stories, Kelly Link is
