'Weinstein is a master of his craft.' * Millions * 'A darkly mesmerising, fearless, and exquisitely written work. Stunning, harrowing, and brilliantly imagined.' * Emily St. John Mandel, author of Station Eleven on Children of the New World * 'These stories are equally unnerving and tender, and a reminder that what we ultimately long for is human connection.' * LitHub * 'In the vein of George Saunders, Rick Bass and Alex Shakar, Weinstein writes with stirring particularity, unfailing sensitivity, and supercharged imagination, creating nuanced stories harbouring a molten core of astutely satirical inquiries.' * Booklist (starred review) *
