K. Rowling, and Link finds truths there that most authors wouldn't dare touch."-Lev Grossman, Time "She is unique and should be declared a national treasure."-Neil Gaiman "Funny, scary, surprising and powerfully moving within the span of a single story or even a single sentence."-Karen Russell, The Miami Herald "This is what certain readers live for: fiction that makes the world instead of merely mimicking it."-Audrey Niffenegger "[These] exquisite stories mix the aggravations and epiphanies of everyday life with the stuff that legends, dreams and nightmares are made of."-Laura Miller, Salon, Best Books of the Decade "A major talent . . . Like George Saunders, [Link] can't dismiss the hidden things that tap on our windows at night."-The Boston Globe "The most darkly playful voice in American fiction."-Michael Chabon "I think she is the most impressive writer of her generation."-Peter Straub "Link's world is one to savor.
