Description: "The exhilaration of such a novel is nearly beyond calculation. If a new literature is at hand then it might as well begin here." —Steve Erickson, from his Introduction"Like something you read on the underside of a freeway overpass in a fever dream.The Orange Eats Creepsis visionary, pervy, unhinged. It will mess you up." -Shelley Jackson"Reads like the foster child of Charles Burns'Black Holeand William Burroughs'Soft Machine. A deeply strange and deeply successful debut." -Brian EvensonRefreshingly piquant and playful, reminiscent of postmodern Euro fiction and full of poison pill observations." -Publishers WeeklyIt's the '90s Pacific Northwest refracted through a dark mirror, where meth and madness hash it out in the woods. . . . A band of hobo vampire junkies roam the blighted landscape—trashing supermarket breakrooms, praying to the altar of Poison Idea and GG Allin at basement rock shows, crashing senior center pancake breakfasts—locked in the thrall of Robitussin trips and their own wild dreams.A girl with drug-induced ESP and an eerie connection to Patty Reed (a young member of the Donner Party who credited her survival to her relationship with a hidden wooden doll), searches for her disappeared foster sister along "The Highway That Eats People," stalked by a conflation ofTwin Peaks' "Bob" and the Green River Killer, known as Dactyl.With a scathing voice and penetrating delivery, Grace Krilanovich'sThe Orange Eats Creepsis one of the most ferocious debut novels in memory.Grace Krilanovichhas been a MacDowell colony fellow and a finalist for the Starcherone Prize. Her first book,The Orange Eats Creeps, is the only novel to be excerpted twice inBlack Clock.
