"Un-su Kim is a tremendous writer"
"Showcases his sly, surreal, dark humor about all the ways humans are, well, not particularly human."
"This charming and fantastical book is sure to introduce Kim to a whole new legion of weird fiction fans, ideal for readers of Han Kang's The Vegetarian and the works of Haruki Murakami."
"Kim deftly juggles both macro-level and micro-level ideas about social roles, purpose, and personal narrative."
"What begins as a rather whimsical set of stories turns into a much darker novel, raising issues of difference and acceptance, what people must do to survive, and what is truly monstrous."
"Surprising and enchanting"
