Críticas:

"Astonishing. . . . "Vampires in the Lemon Grove" stands out as Russell's best book . . . with prose so alive it practically backflips off the page." --"San Francisco Chronicle "
" "
"From apparent influences as disparate as George Saunders, Saki, Stephen King, Carson McCullers and Joy Williams, [Russell] has fashioned a quirky, textured voice that is thoroughly her own: lyrical and funny, fantastical and meditative." --Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times "
"One of the most innovative, inspired short-story collections in the past decade. . . . There's absolutely no living author quite like Karen Russell." --Michael Schaub, NPR
"Karen Russell's imagination is once again on full, Technicolor, mind-bending display. . . . Russell's stories will be seizing our imaginations--and nibbling at the edges of our nightmares--for years to come." --"The Miami Herald "
"Hilarious, exquisite, first-rate." --Joy Williams, "The New York Times Book Review "
" "
"One of the great American writers of our young century." --Maureen Corrigan, NPR
"Darkly inventive, demonically driven." --"Elle "
"
""No one combines the fantastical with the mundane quite like Karen Russell. . . . The stories in "Vampires" portray ordinary life with an otherworldly twist in a fascinating and unexpected way. And yet these haunting tales are written with such clarity and recognizable perspectives that they manage the greatest feat of all: in the surreal, we see ourselves. "--"Jessica Gentile, "Paste Magazine," #1 Best Book of the Year
"Sea deep, scary smart, richly inventive." --"More "
" "
"Delightfully weird." --"Esquire "
" "
"A writer to track and to treasure." --"Chicago Tribune"
"In another ten years Russell will be her generation's George Saunders: the writer whose books are stolen and studied, flashed like badges, and worn to death with rereading. . . . Breathtaking." --"The Boston Globe
"
"One of the most remarkable fantasists writing today." --Elizabeth Hand, "The Washington Post
"
"Witty, and wise, and brimming with vitality. . . . In Russell's stories, malice strolls with morality, horror tangos with humor, and the spirits of Franz Kafka and Flannery O'Connor meet with unexpected comity. . . . With a voice that could spring from an unleashed demon--or an angel on amphetamines--Russell fills this exuberant collection with life's radiance and shadows." --"Richmond Times-Dispatch
"
"Consistently arresting . . . startling . . . profound. . . . Even more impressive than Russell's critically acclaimed novel." --"Kirkus Reviews" (starred review)
"Dazzlingly strange. . . . Vacillating between horror and humor, Russell's writing recalls both George Saunders and vintage Stephen King, sometimes simultaneously."--"Time Out Chicago
"
"A darkly surreal treat." --Wired.com
"Eight new cages of horror and heart and winding metamorphoses that would take a normal writer a lifetime to dream into being." --"Interview "magazine
"Bone-chilling ... fantasy and horror underlined with social commentary." --"People
"
"As Russell's imagination soars, so does our joy in reading this collection." --Oprah.com
"Wildly inventive. . . . Wondrously strange and moving." --"Reader's Digest"
"In these stories, familiar human emotions leap into relief against backdrops of almost Tim Burton-like weirdness. . . . [Russell's] stories are as robust as can be." --"New York "magazine
"Karen Russell's stories defy definition. They are at once warm and sinister, a bubble bath with a shark fin lurking underneath the suds." --"The Millions
"
"Clever as hell." --"BookRiot
"
"Wildly imaginative. . . . Gorgeous. . . . Russell has once again mapped the dark country between our everyday and more primal selves." --"Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"
"A master of magical realism." --"New York Observer"
"Powerful. . . . Russell pulls the rug out on our imagination, creating perplexing, surreal scenarios that bump into the common reality that most of us take for granted." --"Minneapolis Star Tribune"
"Wondrously strange and moving." --"Reader's Digest
"
"Nearly flawless . . . . Russell's best work manages to both create a fascinating, surreal world and coax meaning out of it." --"The Onion"'s A.V. Club

A Washington Post Notable Book
An NPR Great Read of 2013

From the author of the novel Swamplandia!—a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize—comes a magical and uniquely daring collection of stories that showcases the author’s gifts at their inimitable best.

Within these pages, a community of girls held captive in a Japanese silk factory slowly transmute into human silkworms and plot revolution; a group of boys stumble upon a mutilated scarecrow that bears an uncanny resemblance to a missing classmate that they used to torment; a family’s disastrous quest for land in the American West has grave consequences; and in the marvelous title story, two vampires in a sun-drenched lemon grove try to slake their thirst for blood and come to terms with their immortal relationship.
