Fantastical and fantastically true, Jen Ganns stories dive into the animals in all of us: the ghost horses, the roasted bees, the washed ashore tigers, the gorillas chained to the mayors statue, underbiters and flower-scalped and gym bombers and mothers and children and slot machines you can trick by sticking a cookie in. When Back Tuck mewls from the bottom of the hill, it mewls of everything we tried to push down.

"Brilliant little fantastical stories that read like fables with a kick, a violent twist, a frenetic yet measured feeling that sends you loving her characters then dreading what will happen to them." Amber Sparks at Vouched
"The power of Gann's story is not just that it evokes a great deal of compassion for these rejected characters, but also that it confronts, yet again, the notion of what is "normal."" — Leila Emery at Lines and Stars
