2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mara R. Lander on August 6, 2009
Format: Paperback
This book is basically a look into the lives of a small community, but Woods presents that look through fun-house style glasses. It's experimental and magical while being undeniably familiar. The book goes to the wackiest imaginable places without ever letting go of this anchor of recognizable truth.
Anyway, i thought it was great. And there are super-kick pictures throughout.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Kristen D. Iskandrian on August 14, 2009
Format: Paperback
Creepy and beautiful. Surprising moments of incredible tenderness, shot through with humor, just as it should be. Woods's visual artwork enhances his written work by complicating it; in some cases nearly upending it. I love the effect of the illustrations on the stories, and vice versa. In some ways, this is a collection of ghost stories, but the ghosts are painfully human. An uncommonly good, unsettling book--and also a great display piece.
