In Gillis's first short story collection after a trio of novels, most of his characters are train wrecks in progress; each story is truly original in nature. PRAISE "Gillis's stories are illuminatingly strange, filled with power, electric, and will stay with you long after you think you've gone to sleep."-Stephen Elliott, author of Happy Baby "Steven Gillis adores language, grasps what makes and breaks a family, and loves to squeeze things until they shatter."-Richard Peabody, editor of Gargoyle Magazine "In this uncommon collection of short stories, one of Steven Gillis's characters says: 'Just not into normal, is that it?' Yeah, that's it exactly. Gillis's strength and virtue as a writer is that he's just not into normal."-Ellen Parker, editor of FRiGG
