Very much fun.’ — Margaret Atwood, Twitter ‘Kelly Link is inimitable. Her stories are like nothing else, dark yet sparkling with her unique brand of fairy dust, wonderfully strange but still familiar and real. Get in Trouble is filled with pocket universes, each tale containing so much more than its length might suggest and crackling with the unexpect: the most marvelous kind of trouble to get in.’ Erin Morgenstern ‘In this utterly astonishing new collection, Kelly Link demonstrates a perfect and completely mature command of the entirely unexpected, ever-evolving, self-examining, deeply original and personal, emotion-riddled kind of story only Kelly Link is capable of writing.’ — Peter Straub ‘Exquisite, cruelly wise and the opposite of reassuring, these stories linger like dreams and will leave readers looking over their shoulders for their own ghosts.’ Kirkus ‘The tales are imaginatively bizarre yet can be seen as allegorical representations of our own crazy modern world. Most of the protagonists here are female and resourceful; it’s a pleasure to immerse oneself in fantasy worlds where women aren’t victims or pale stereotypes.’ Library Journal ‘Nobody writes stories like Kelly Link…Seek out this book and then dig through her others: she’s a modern master of the short story, skewering our lives at every step.’ Thousands ‘There are surprises on every page. Nothing is what it seems; everything is much more. In short, Kelly Link is magic.’ BookPage ‘It resonates with depth and maturity, the sense of a writer using genre for her purposes rather than the other way around…With Get In Trouble, she has created a series of fully articulated pocket universes, animated by a three-dimensional sense of character, of life.’ LA Times ‘The nine stories in Link’s fourth collection sizzle with surprises…Link is one of a kind.’
