Ssing classmate that they used to torment; a family’s disastrous uest for land in the American West has grave conseuences; and in the marvelous title story two vampires in a sun drenched lemon grove try to slake their thirst for blood and come to terms with their immortal relationship. I had been looking forward to this book coming out because I loved Karen Russell's first book of short stories St Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves These stories did not disappoint I was curious to see if there would be set in Florida but these span from Italy to New Jersey to the plains to Antarctica And just as I would have expected the stories are at times startling amusing and sad I will just say a few words about each but this is a must readVampires in the Lemon Grove two ancient vampires try to satiate their desires by eating lemonsReeling for the Empire human silkwormsThe Seagull Army Descends on Strong Beach 1979 maybe the seagulls are the only ones really paying attentionProving Up starts as a struggling farm family story ends in a i can't even shiverThe Barn at the End of Our Term dead presidents alive in horses' bodiesactual presidents not the band this one made me laugh than any of the others Dougbert Shackleton's Rules of Antarctic Tailgating Sometimes you're the whale but you're probably usually the krillThe New Veterans PTSD massage tattoos and what is healing exactlyThe Graveless Doll of Eric Mutis I couldn't decide what I thought of this one It did have the only bit I marked because it is about a librarianI think we needed that librarian to follow us around the hallways for every minute of every school day reading us her story of our lives her fine script of who we wereThe audio version is great because each story has its own reader really allowing for the differences in voice and feelingVampires in the Lemon Grove read by Arthur MoreyReeling for the Empire read by Joy Osmanski The Seagull Army Descends on Strong Beach 1979 read by Kaleo Griffith Proving Up read by Jesse Bernstein his accent is perfect for this storyThe Barn at the End of Our Term read by Mark BramhallDougbert Shackleton's Rules of Antarctic Tailgating read by Michael Bybee The New Veterans read by Romy Rosemont The Graveless Doll of Eric Mutis read by Robbie Daymond

Showcases the author’s gifts at their inimitable best Within these pages a community of girls held captive in a Japanese silk factory slowly transmute into human silkworms and plot revolution; a group of boys stumble upon a mutilated scarecrow that bears an uncanny resemblance to a mi. I was delighted by this collection of weird and wonderful stories Almost as sprightly as Murakami and sometimes leaning toward the flavor of Annie Proulx’s gothic tall tales and encounters with supernatural in her collections on the American West In the title story an ancient married couple who happen to be immortal vampires live among the gentry immigrated to Sorrento in sunny Italy Magred and Clyde keep up a refined banter worthy of the anti heroes in Pulp Fiction At the end of the day overseeing their fruit grove they take special pleasure of a daily cocktail hour with their harvest of fresh lemons They have learned from trial and error over the centuries that certain drinks can slake their rapacious lust for blood We spent our honeymoon hopping continents hunting liuid chimeras mint tea in Fez coconut flurries in Oahu jet black coffee in Bogota jackal’s milk in Dakar cherry coke floats in rural Alabama a thousand beverages purported to have uenching propertiesBut we learn with a bit of comic flair that there are challenges keeping a marriage fresh for so many decades And we let loose with some dark garnish in the cocktail that assures us that no simple psychochemistry can really tame a vampire’s natural ways Fun and spooky at the same timeA few elements of the situation of my favorites can give you a perspective on the range in these stories while revealing a convergence on a marriage of the comic weird and spooky weird In The New Veterans a massage therapist for veterans of the Ira War with PTSD becomes obsessed with helping a survivor of an IED attack who has the story tattooed on his back In apparent homage to Bradbury the relationship between the tale she draws from the man has a changing relationship with that in the tattoo I love how the therapist narrator’s own story gives her a vested interest in healing this man Just as a reader is changed by grappling with different takes on a story I got some zings as I channeled her struggle to deal with varying interpretations of the man and his tattoo while neither seemed to hold to a clear patternIn The Barn at the End of Our Term we get the daffy scenario of the spirit minds of dead presidents relegated to an eternal horse farm Nice opportunity to explore what presidents from different eras would have to say to each other In a situation where all stripped down to a limited channel of being in the present where all accomplishments of the past become a matter of historical memory or assertion and the future kind of frozen and fuzzy Which president do you figure would get most wound up to escape somehow and God knows to where A whimsy you can get carried away with at least until the imaginary solidity of the ice gets thinAmong amazing but somewhat less favored stories one women in Imperial Japan are trying to escape them enslavement as factory workers who not only spin silk but produce it from their bodies like silkworms one that features seagulls which are getting involved in messing with the fates of some teenagers in New Jersey one that tracks the odyssey of an 11 year old boy while on a humanemission for his wheat farmer father in 19th century Nebraska one beset by phantasms of his dead sisters growing out of the ground and visitations from farmers who came to a bad end one has some brutal school bullies of a kid with epilepsy experience a Stephen King kind of comeuppance another one that turns the fight between species in the Anarctic regions into a fantastical and comic international sporting eventI am not deeply experienced in the ways short stories do their magic I tend to feel short changed and hungry for a fuller arc about the characters and their story But collections like this begin to help me appreciate the microcosm of each story with world building that takes the deftness of crafting a ship in a bottle And the sense of a window view that implies much that goes beyond the frame I felt a lot of cleverness here that was playful and mind bending rather than smug and profound
