“There’s beauty and tenderness here as well as great wit and, like the best stories, a delicious sense of the unexpected”

“A stunning collection … from a wonderfully quirky and highly original writer”

“July’s short fiction is quirky and self-consciously postmodern in style … The best of her stories adds a depth of emotional truth which can persuade you to believe in her most oddball worlds.”
Helen Chappell

“Surprising, amusing and touching … they’ll fill you with a renewed sense of wonder at the world”
