A new, much anticipated collection of stories from the inimitable Kelly Link. 'These nine stories may begin in familiar territory - a birthday party, a theme park, a bar, a spaceship - but they quickly draw readers into an imaginative, disturbingly ominous world of realistic fantasy and unreal reality. Like Kafka hosting Saturday Night Live, Link mixes humour with existential dread...... Her characters, driven by yearning and obsession, not only get in trouble but seek trouble out - to spectacular effect.' Publishers Weekly 'Darkly funny, sexy, frightening, and truly weird - Link can dismantle and remake the world in a paragraph.' Karen Russell 'The most darkly playful voice in American fiction.' Michael Chabon 'She is unique and should be declared a national treasure.' Neil Gaiman 'Richly imagined, intellectually teasing- these are not so much small fictions as windows on to entire worlds. A brilliant, giddying read.' Sarah Waters 'In this utterly astonishing new collection, Kelly Link demonstrates a perfect and completely mature command of the entirely unexpected, ever-evolving, self-examining, deeply original and personal, emotion-riddled kind of story only Kelly Link is capable of writing.' Peter Straub 'Kelly Link's tales are like nothing else, dark yet sparkling with her unique brand of fairy dust. Wonderfully strange but still familiar and real. Get in Trouble is filled with pocket universes, each tale containing so much more than its length might suggest and crackling with the unexpected. The most marvelous kind of trouble to get in.'
