    1. Glover is like a darker, sadder, naughtier version of George Saunders If that sounds appealing to you, then you really should get your hands on this collection at some point Don t let my ambiguous 3 star rating discourage you he really is a talented writer, and the majority of these odd stories are definitely worth reading.


    2. These stories are recycled from previous collections Seven stories were in 16 Categories of Desire and four were in A Guide to Animal Behaviour.
