Review quote

" Featuring a colourful assortment of superheroes, mutants, zombies, bank robbers and boy bands these stories are wonderfully bizarre, original and hilarious. A new and original voice, Patrick Lenton's short stories bring qualities rare in Australian fiction; inventiveness, humour, and a fine sense of the absurd." Ryan O'Neill, author, "The Weight of a Human Heart"" "Lenton careens wildly across genres and draws on elements of surrealism, horror, fairytale, stand-up comedy, and pulp fiction to generate tiny worlds that are surprising, original, and frequently hilarious. . . .There are echoes of David Sedaris' surreal animal fables Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk. Like Sedaris, Lenton is hugely entertaining, which renders occasional moments of emotional tenderness all the more poignant." --Bookseller + Publisher "'Featuring a colourful assortment of superheroes, mutants, zombies, bank robbers and boy bands - these stories are wonderfully bizarre, original and hilarious. A new and original voice, Patrick Lenton's short stories bring qualities rare in Australian fiction; inventiveness, humour, and a fine sense of the absurd." --Ryan O'Neill, author, The Weight of a Human Heart
