Breathtaking * * THE TIMES * * A brilliant, giddying read -- SARAH WATERS Funny, moving, tender, brave and dangerous. She is unique -- NEIL GAIMAN Welcome to the fabulous mind of Kelly Link. Beautifully written [and] daring -- SCARLETT THOMAS * * NEW YORK TIMES * * Link's prose and ideas dazzle * * GUARDIAN * * Link's stories play in a place few writers go, a netherworld between literature and fantasy, Alice Munro and JK Rowling * * TIME * * Filled with pocket universes, each tale crackling with the unexpected. The most marvelous kind of trouble to get in -- ERIN MORGENSTERN Very much fun -- @MARGARETATWOOD Intoxicating. These stories will come alive, put on zoot suits, and wrestle you to the ground. They want you and you will be theirs -- ALICE SEBOLD Every one of the stories in this collection is like a one-of-a-kind Jack-in-the-box. We turn the crank, expecting the laughter, the surprise, the rearrangement of themes familiar to our ears from ages ago, and the turning brings us all those joys. But wait, wait until the box pops open: out comes not Jack nor the weasel but our own exposed hearts. How does Kelly Link understand our pains and longings and memories and even our futures so well, and how does she make us go back to the next Jack-in-the-box, again and again, with hope and dread and determination to know life better, to live differently? Kelly Link s a national treasure! -- YIYUN LI 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 the top of her self-defined form. Another way to say it is: close your mouth and get out of the way, because here comes Kelly Link, than whom no one is better -- PETER STRAUB Kelly Link is the literary descendant of Jorge Luis Borges and Franz Kafka -- AUDREY NIFFENEGGER 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 * * Franz Kafka with a better understanding of lady's footwear and bad first dates. -- KAREN RUSSELL 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 * * 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 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 * * The most darkly playful voice in American fiction -- MICHAEL CHABON 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.
