e-Staff Picks: Vampires in the Lemon Grove by Karen Russell
Jenn says: “Russell takes a turn for the dark and violent, in addition to the surreal and absurd, in her new short story collection. Her protagonists have grown up, and boy howdy so have her plotlines. From the American frontier, to inner-city schools, to Antarctic tailgaters, to kidnapped Japanese factory girls, there is a huge range of stories here to enjoy. Maybe read with the lights on, though?”Check it out!
