About the Author

The author of eight novels, three collections of short fiction, a book of essays and five books of poetry, Rikki Ducornet has twice been honored by the Lannan Foundation. She has received the Bard College Arts and Letters award and, in 2008, an Academy Award in Literature. Her work is widely published abroad.

Reviews
"Rikki Ducornet is linguistically explosive ... one of the most interesting American writers around."
"In the bizarre world of Rikki Ducornet's fiction, laughter and terror hold hands in an uneasy truce and almost anything can happen." -- Richard Burgin
"It is high time that the U.S. discovered one of its foremost women novelists and accorded her the recognition that the ebullient quality of her imagination deserves."
"[Ducornet] writers like a stunned time-traveler, testifying in breathless fragments to exotic ages that have gone or never were . . . . It's startling and refreshing to encounter a writer whose work insists so relentlessly upon the magic of making tales." -- Robert Chatain

an irresistible sequence of bizarre, quirky and zany stories' -Robert Allen Papinchak, Seattle Times
