Whenever I hear someone say "be excited" I get a mental-image of the Christopher McDonald infomericals from Requiem for a Dream.
Excitement is definitely building toward the release of Grace Krilanovich's debut novel, The Orange Eats Creeps.
Michael Berger at The Rumpus: "Needless to say I'm looking forward to reading The Orange Eats Creeps."
Blake Butler at HTML Giant: "Really excited for [The Orange Eats Creeps]. I kind of want to marry it for its description alone."
Michael Schaub at Bookslut: "I've had Grace Krilanovich's The Orange Eats Creeps on my to-be-read pile for a while now, but this interview with the young author just moved it to the top."
And Nicole Rudick at Comics Comics Magazine: "The book already sounded intriguing, but one that uses [Mat] Brinkman’s art—I’m sold."
Tobias Carroll at Vol. 1 Brooklyn reviewed the book yesterday: "[Krilanovich's] novel shares a disorienting quality with . . . Brian Evenson's The Open Curtain. And in the end, the most resonant pit-of-your-stomach dread doesn't come from a roadside killer or fangs poised above a neck. Instead, its a much simpler scene, something rooted in mundane indifference that brings this novel to its unexpectedly domestic and achingly painful conclusion."
This is just a friendly reminder that your opportunity to order the book in our August pre-sale for $10 is closing -- sale ends Tuesday, August 31.
