Blending the literary and the fantastic, the author of Mr. Splitfoot creates portraits of people on the verge?girls turning into women, women turning into deer, people doubling or becoming ghosts—conjuring entire universes in just a few pages. Including "Wampum," "The House Began to Pitch," "Beast," "Cortès the Killer," and the novella "The Story of Of," the ten tales in this 2018 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction finalist find Samantha Hunt playfully pushing the bounds of the expected and imagining numerous ways in which the weird might poke its way through the mundane.

"Hunt is by turns hilarious, wry, wrenching, and lyrical."—Boston Globe
