About the Author
Kiik Araki-Kawaguchi writes dreampop speculative fictions that can be enjoyed on a bus ride or in line for coffee. All his best stories have something to do with talking insects. He is author of Disintegration Made Plain and Easy.

"Araki-Kawaguchi's inventive, surreal novel in stories (after Disintegration Made Plain and Easy) follows a group of characters who leave the bounds of a WWII-era Japanese internment camp through magic and mischief. . . . This beautifully rendered reflection on a dark moment of American history will appeal to fans of literary speculative fiction."
--Publishers Weekly

"Araki-Kawaguchi's The Book of Kane and Margaret is an important book and a brilliant one. Surreal, moving, and beautifully written. One of my favorite reads of this or any year."
--Jeff VanderMeer, author of Annihilation

"A wondrous trance--one of those novels that defies the rules to make its own indelible order. Araki-Kawaguchi's debut is a virtuosic performance of sentences and empathy. Fable, history, slapstick, and a riotous lament--The Book of Kane and Margaret contains it all."
--Salvador Plascencia, author of The People of Paper

"A dazzling debut from an important new writer. Highly imaginative, bittersweet, astonishing, playful and yet also poignant."
--Ann VanderMeer, editor of The Big Book of Classic Fantasy

"The Book of Kane and Margaret is ravaging--a magical tale of a family shaped by internment, a necessary document of human and narrative inventiveness--an abundance of astonishments, harrowing, coy, joyful, audacious, wise, loving, true. It's not just a great debut, it's a great book."
--Lucy Corin, author of The Swank Hotel
