Reviews
With King of the Animals, Josh Russell affirms his status as one of our most shrewdly capable writers. Mortality and transformation, being a child and being a parent, the lifelong process that is growing up--these are but some of the aspects of American life toward which Russell, in stories that vary richly one from the other except in never ending up where you expect them to, aims his telescope. Tenderhearted, funny, and gorgeously written.--David Leavitt
The forty-seven components of Josh Russell's engrossing King of the Animals are always entertaining, never less than mischievous, constantly surprising, and stunningly well expressed. Yes, they are stories, vignettes, parables, moral tales--but none of those descriptions do them full justice. Let's just say that Russell is the master of short-form fiction in all its limitless variety.--Jim Crace
