In Jon Gower's fifth collection of short fiction, he has unleashed a motley crew of rambunctious characters ... These unique stories are a melting pot of wild imagination and inventive language, conjured up with a drop of magic realism, a hint of the surreal and a soupçon of fable. ' - Madeleine D'Arcy, author of Waiting for the Bullet
