With lines like "We are at the stage in our great socialist experiment when we are no longer sure who should pay who," Karl Taro Greenfeld's stories summon up the truth of our current world.
-Xiaolu Guo, author of A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers

Made me want to sit up, shave my mustache, and by a new pair of shoes. A fine, powerful collection. I found myself thinking, more than once, that Graham Greene would have enjoyed it.
-Mohsin Hamid, author of Moth Smoke and The Reluctant Fundamentalist

-Jessica Hagedorn, author of Toxicology and Dogeaters
