9780099578963: Vampires in the Lemon Grove

An awkward teen with a terrible haircut has a reversal of fortune when he finds artefacts from the future lining a seagulls' nest.

In a godforsaken barn, Presidents Eisenhower, John Adams and Rutherford B. Hayes are bemused to find themselves reincarnated as horses.

Clyde and Magreb - he a traditional capes-and-coffins vampire, she the more progressive variety - settle in an Italian lemon grove in the hope that its ripe fruit will keep their thirst for blood at bay.

'Russell can take Antarctic tailgaters, an army of seagulls or simply a window and twist a tale that explodes on the page and lingers in the mind' The Times

Review:

"Her work has a velocity and a trajectroy that is little less than dazzling and a tough, enveloping, exhilarating voice than cannot be equaled." ( Joy Williams, New York Times)

"A consistently arresting, frequently stunning collection...Even more impressive than Russell's critically acclaimed novel." ( Kirkus Reviews)

"Karen Russell’s third book, the story collection “Vampires in the Lemon Grove,” should cement her reputation as one of the most remarkable fantasists writing today" (Elizabeth Hand Washington Post)

"Russell can take Antarctic tailgaters, an army of seagulls or simply a window and twist a tale that explodes on the page and lingers in the mind" (Fiona Wilson The Times)

"A touch of paradoxically grounding pixie humour. This way of writing is so clever that nothing needs to be added to the set-up… These stories have unbelievable strength" (M John Harrison Guardian)

Book Description:

A wickedly funny and dark new collection of dystopian tales from the Pulitzer and IMPAC shortlisted author of Swamplandia!
