Literal as well as metaphorical monsters inhabit this book of 38 innovative fictions. Here the reader will encounter not only zombies and ghosts, but a lyrical dream braided into a brutal and sorrowful real world. Monsters’ vision embodies the heartbreakingly private and depressingly public—and the funny flipside of it all.

PRAISE:

“Karen Brennan evokes here a fairy tale world that is just like this world, only sadder and stranger.” --Kate Bernheimer, author of How a Mother Weaned her Girl from Fairy Tales
