A fantastic collection of (very) short stories unlike any other. It plays with words and reality in ways that make you crazy and impressed, plus it's funny and, seriously, just that good. --Lisa Gatlin, Arizona Daily Wildcat
Manickavel's stories are a mixture of odd, disjointed flashes, surreal sketches, and more traditionally shaped tales which possess a rare freshness. She is not afraid of the darker corners of human experience and she uses a devilish humour which sits well with the strange goings-on in her work. --Nuala Ni Chonchuir, The Short Review
Not merely lyrical and strange, but also deadpan funny. --Miranda July
