Little Nightmares, Little Dreams: Short Stories

'“Dazzling . . . Each story is more creative than the last. . . . An incredible debut.” —The Pittsburgh Press   “A brilliant tapestry of stories . . . Virtually no manner of relationship escapes this prizewinning author’s astute eye and tender wit. . . . Simon is an expert at weaving popular culture into short, personal narratives studded with analogy and laced with meaning.” —Booklist   “A literary ventriloquist . . . Without an agent, tiny Rachel Simon of Abington snared a big New York publisher for the debut collection of her stunning, darkly celebratory short stories. They’re unforgettable.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer   “Very original . . . Perfect pitch . . . A very talented and very promising writer.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch   “Raffish and spooky stories . . . She delivers on her promise like a veteran.” —San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle   “Distinctive, often arresting . . . With a dark humor that often plunges her characters into surreal circumstances, she evokes a Blue Velvet type of skewed Americana. . . . All the stories are as much about the startling interior life of the mind as they are about the superficiality of order and reason. An impressive new voice.” —Publishers Weekly   “Rachel Simon’s stories are quick-witted, sexy, and full of heart. They grab your attention and keep it. This is a remarkable book.” —Bestselling author Charles Baxter   “Sweet and strong, weird and funny, Little Nightmares, Little Dreams is a very good book.” —Bestselling author Mary Gaitskill'
