In six stories and the novella, Bounty, Saunders introduces readers to people struggling to survive in an increasingly haywire world.
"(Saunders) has created a surreal, weirdly persuasive picture of the devolved future now taking shape in our own worst and most potent tendencies." —Tobias Wolff
". . . the quirkiest and most accomplished short-story debut since Barry Hannah's Airships." —Jay McInervey, The New York Times Book Review
