Most Excellent and Lamentable
Publisher: Epigram Books
Enter the strange mind of Jason Erik Lundberg, hailed by The Guardian for “achieving emotionally resonant effects within just a few pages”. Let his imagination introduce you to an unearthly star girl, a foul-mouthed wombat, slithering immortals, a fish with premonitions, and much more.
These short stories, painstakingly selected from Lundberg’s first three collections, include a brand-new novelette—“Slowly Slowly Slowly” takes place in a future Singapore where an old folks' home takes the form of an actual zoo—and the author's preferred texts of “The Stargirl and the Potter” and “Ikan Berbudi (Wise Fish)”.
