It Will Mess You Up!!!

We're about to send Grace Krilanovich's first novel, The Orange Eats Creeps to the printer. Above is the cover with ye olde french flaps.
The last couple weeks have elicited some super-human praise from the likes of some super-human writers. Peep this:
"Like something you read on the underside of a freeway overpass in a fever dream. The Orange Eats Creeps is visionary, pervy, unhinged. It will mess you up."
-Shelley Jackson
"The Orange Eats Creeps reads like the foster child of Charles Burns' Black Hole and William Burroughs' Soft Machine. A deeply strange and deeply successful debut."
-Brian Evenson
And a taste-bomb review from Publishers Weekly:
"[A] slyly arch debut. The story careens from encounter to encounter, bursting into vibrant tableaus of images and barrages of prickly observations. Krilanovich's postmodern mashup is refreshlingly piquant and playful, reminiscent of postmodern Euro fiction and full of poison pill observations."
