In her second collection of stories, the author of the Pulitzer-finalist Swamplandia! turns her wit and vibrant prose to a variety of subjects. From aging, but immortal, vampires looking for the perfect place to retire to a traumatized Iraq war veteran whose tattoo memorializing his lost comrade changes with his emotions, Russell ingeniously blends magic with a suspenseful psychological realism.
