  • Superbly crafted...the weird and the outlandish exist side-by-side with everyday concerns... Russell is among the most skilled of this generation’s fabulist writers. In her surreal worlds, life is passing strange, but it is not devoid of wry comfort

    Nilanjana Roy, Financial Times
  • I loved Orange World by Karen Russell, which is a collection of short stories in which demons live in drains, bog women come back from the dead and trees can grow inside the human body

    Daisy Johnson, New Statesman, Books of the Year
  • One of our most original short story writers... Russell has impeccable command of her form... Russell’s particular gift lies in taking themes that are close to universal and presenting them in stories whose strangeness comes to seem entirely natural, even necessary

    New York Times Book Review
  • A mesmerising, often hilarious, new collection that embraces survival, love and magnificent transformation

    Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday, *Books of the Year*
