"Wonderfully weird." --Vulture

"Complex, daring, emotional, and unique." --B. J. Novak, author of One More Thing

"Heartrending. . . . Poignant." --The Atlantic

"Sidesplitting. . . . Bizarre and hilarious." --Shelf Awareness (starred review) "[These stories] conjure struggles for connection in grimly surreal alternative realities that recall the probing comic imaginings of George Saunders." --Los Angeles Times

"Showcases Bob-Waksberg's talent for conjuring fantastical scenarios and writing about them with a straight face. . . . Human relationships, he seems to be saying, are weirder than anything else our imaginations can come up with." --NPR "I can say without hesitation that the collection surpasses my impossibly high expectations. . . . A tremendous debut." --Ian Mond, Locus "These stories, while infused with elements of fantasy, made me feel and feel more connected to the human condition." --Elise Hu, TED Talks Daily

"These tales are heartfelt and funny, a winning combo. Dazzled by the wit, you'll be surprised when you start tearing up at the sincere turn." --Read It Forward

"Wonderfully absurd and unexpectedly moving. . . . These stories are at times poignant and triumphantly silly, but always manage to ring true." --Publishers Weekly

"Bob-Waksberg's fiction debut will capture many readers with its formal innovation, playful language, and relatable portraits of romance gone awry." --Booklist

"Sometimes-whimsical, sometimes-biting short fictions. . . . A savage sendup of love in all its dubious glory." --Kirkus Reviews "[These stories] keep us engaged and on our toes. With love, your Nana." --Shirley Bob, author's grandmother "Very moving and true to today's society. I'm so proud of my little Raphi." --Florence Waksberg, author's grandmother
