In this new collection, Saunders takes us even further into the shocking, uproarious and oddly familiar landscape of his imagination that we first encountered in Civil-Warland in Bad Decline. Whether he writes a gothic morality tale in which a male exotic dancer is haunted by his maiden aunt from beyond the grave, or about a self-help guru who tells his followers his mission is to discover who's been 'crapping in your oatmeal', Saunders' stories reveal a picture of contemporary America that's both feverishly strange and, through his characters' perseverance, oddly hopeful.
