In her moving and elegant new collection, New York Times bestseller Karen Joy Fowler writes about John Wilkes Booth's younger brother, a one-winged man, a California cult, and a pair of twins, and she digs into our past, present, and future in the quiet, witty, and incisive way only she can.

The sinister and the magical are always lurking just below the surface: for a mother who invents a fairy-tale world for her son in "Halfway People"; for Edwin Booth in "Edwin's Ghost," haunted by his fame as "America's Hamlet" and his brother's terrible actions; for Norah, a rebellious teenager facing torture in "The Pelican Bar" as she confronts Mama Strong, the sadistic boss of a rehabilitation facility; for the narrator recounting her descent in "What I Didn't See."

With clear and insightful prose, Fowler's stories measure the human capacities for hope and despair, brutality and kindness. This collection, which includes two Nebula Award winners, is sure to delight readers, even as it pulls the rug out from underneath them.

Beautiful, haunting stories. One of my fave authors today. Fowler blends mystery with fantasy and science fiction in a way I haven’t found anywhere before.

After enjoying The Jane Austen Book Club, I tried this book and found it as well written, each character brought to life by a few well chosen, unusual memories. Her short stories contain elements of science fiction while remaining personal. Unlike her novel, her short stories often end abruptly and unhappily, but they still flicker with her sense of humor. Several of the stories are unforgettable in how she brings their strangeness so close.

I bought this book because I wanted to have what I consider one of the important speculative fiction collections of this decade. Fowler's stories deliver such crafty precision of both physical detail and emotional nuance that they're worth repeated reading, particularly the title story. Should be on any short story writer's shelf.

The opening story was tough to get through, but it was as excellent as it was brutal-- and don't let it stop you from reading the whole thing. Definitely some new favorites found, in here. Very quick read.
  • Itiannta
i was impressed with Fowler's We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves so i purchased these short stories. They are written with the same intelligence and wit. Brava!
  • Elizabeth
I have to start out by saying that I'm a huge fan of Karen Joy Fowler's work. If you haven't read Sarah Canary, it's an absolute must-read. That is one of my top ten favorite books of all time. I've read her short fiction before; Black Glass was my first introduction to her exquisite prose, and those stories knocked me out. She continues that tradition of superior story crafting in this collection of short fiction. Don't miss it.

Pretty bizarre stuff.
Way too dark for me!
